Topic: keep getting "Create Adobe PDF's"

Mac OS 9.2.2
Adobe Acrobat 5.05
Adobe PS 8.7.2
Virtual Printer 8.7.0 (101)

I just had a hard drive crash, got a new drive, and in reinstalling all my software, I couldn't get the Virtual Printer icon to setup on the desktop like I used to have. I tried a number of diff AdobePS and Virtual Printer versions until I finally got it to work after reinstalling Acrobat, but now, for some reason also got the Create Adobe PDF PPD. On the desktop, now that I have the Virtual Printer icon, I select it, then from Quark I go to print to Acrobat Distiller so I can get my .ps file (to run thru Distiller later) but each time I say PRINT, the selection leaves the Virtual Printer icon for a second, then a Create Adobe PDF icon shows keeps happening and I trash it each time it appears. It's now on Create Adobe PDF15! I even took CreateAdobePDF out of the Printer Description folder and threw it on the desktop for now. How do I get rid of this problem? do I have the wrong versions to use Virtual Printer correctly?

Thanks in advance!
