In Illustrator 10 i have placed a 150 Meg TIF file onto my artwork and then added some vector text around it and then saved it as as an .ai file.  Now it is only 210 K.   Is this right?  How can it be this small when there is a 150 meg tif file embedded into it?  Do i need to send this TIF to the printers with my .ai document as well??

sounds like your image isn't embedded, but linked. linking is fine, printers probably prefer it be linked rather than embedded. just be sure to send both the .ai file AND the .tif file when you send it off.

to see if your file is embedded or linked, open the ai file, open the links palette. your tif should be listed and if there is a icon to the right of the listing, then its embedded, no icon means its linked.
