When try to create a PDF from the scanner after each page I have a TWAIN pop window asking me to set the page parameters again...how can I get rid of that and request that the documents scan in ALL pages without interruptions?

Complain to Adobe. Scanning used to work fine in Acrobat 5, then they completely broke it in Acrobat 6. They put out a fix for the most severe problems with 6.0.5. It got a bit better in Acrobat 7. All I can say about Acrobat 8 at this time is that I'm having problems with a pretty standard flatbed scanner on a Mac (the scanner works fine with Acrobat 7 and Photoshop).
It certainly seems that scanning is not an important feature to Adobe. From my experience it also looks like they target mostly the cheap desktop scanner market and not the more advanced scanners with ADF.

So, there is not much you can do besides waiting for the next patch and try again.

What scanner are you using?

I am using a samsung multi fax/scanner/printer product. The scanning works fine except that I have to press NEXT after each page...maybe time to go to omniscan

I usually scan with an external application (e.g. on a Mac with Image Capture, or on a PC with Abbyy's FineReader) and then either export directly as a PDF, or import the TIFF images into Acrobat. If you have access to OmniScan, I would use that. You will also get much better OCR results than what Acrobat would provide.
