I would make sure / check that your mobo has drivers, and your mobo / system supports / will handle Vista first.

Before installing Vista / checking what programs work with Vista

You could install it as a duel boot, then if you have problems you can go back to your previous OS.

Why not use something else thats free and a fraction off the installed size such as Sumatra PDF? Adobe is 86mb Sumatra is about 7mb installed

Well tell us what the specs are of your PC.

It'll pay to find out, whether your system will handle Vista first.

Acrobat 8 pro = about $650 - upgrade = about $250

Acrobat Reader though is a free download
