Hello

Since upgrading my system (1.8GHz P4 with 512MB RAM and Ultra 160 SCSI drives), the startup time of some programs (most particularly, acrobat
reader) have gotten REALLY long.

For instance, it takes a minute and 4 seconds for the acroread window
to appear on the display after typing "/usr/bin/acroread" at a shell
prompt.

Do you need to run acrobat? Why not use xpdf, which does a faster open and looks just as well?
