Not loading hyperref is sufficient to avoid using it. And yes, this  
must be humorous, otherwise they must have been malicious. With most  
packages that require driver specific extensions, it is usually best  
to avoid specifying the driver: pdftex will be detected  
automagically, and if dvi is produced, it is assumed that dvips will  
be used. Due to limitations in the various drivers, the results may  
be different: hyperlinks in dvi -> ps -> pdf (i.e. dvips) cannot be  
broken across lines. if pdftex is usde to produce pdf, then  
hyperlinks can be broken. With that warning out of the way, I'll just  
list my setup, with comments. Really all that is there can be found  
in the hyperref manual (texdoc hyperref/manual; read sections 3 & 4).

I usually set all colours to black, and no boxes. This allows me to  
print, while still having internal links. Note that there are some  
packages that must be loaded after hyperref. ~This is usually  
indicated in the respective manual (hypernat for natbib comes to mind).


		colorlinks=true, % use coloured links
		linkcolor=black, % set all colours to black
		bookmarksopen=true, % open the bookmarks when the file is opened.
		bookmarksnumbered=false, % do not number the bookmarks
		pdfpagemode=UseOutlines, % I forgot what this does.
		pdftitle={Some title}, % the title of the document
		pdfauthor={Your name},
		pdfsubject={The sub title of subject},
		pdfkeywords={the keywords for the document. May be used by  
		pdfview={FitH}, % fit the paper horizontally in the window
		pdfstartview={FitH}, % the view when opened
		pdfstartpage={1}, % open on page 1
		plainpages=false, % I forgot why this is there
		pdfpagelabels=true % allow hyperref to produce special page labels,  
avoiding double markers with the same name.
