Illustrator printing issues

I am working with Illus 9.0 and I am trying to view what the image would look like in a final format. All of the text has been turned to outlines and it has been saved as an eps. I have acrobat and am trying to use the distiller to show what the final would look like. However, after distilling the outlined fonts are very jagged and not looking the way that I would like them to. Is there anyway to see the final results or am I doing this wrong.
thanx,
sean

Illustrator 9 and 10 files ARE PDF files. There is no need to go through distiller. Just save the file with acrobat compatibility turned and open the illy file with Acrobat. That's all there is to it. Dont save as EPS, dont run distiller. If you have problems do a Save As and select PDF instead of just opening the .ai.

If youre just viewing the .AI in Acrobat you shouldnt have any problems with fonts, outlined or otherwise.

What im telling you is that if you open the .ai file, NO exporting etc, with Acrobat, you wont get the jaggies.

I still think youre missing me. You wont have jaggies if you open the .ai directly in Acrobat.
