Topic: illustrator 9 to Distiller 4.0 problem with image resolution

Forgive what is probably a desperately newbie query, but I'm trying to distill a hi-res PDF of suitable resolution for printing from an illustrator 9 file. There is a small eps within the illustrator file which seems to get transformed to a low-res bitmap when distilled. I have disabled previews and the color is still fine, so I don't think I'm seeing a preview image. I've tried making this graphic into a very high-res bitmap instead, but it comes out in the same (low) resolution in the PDF, whatever settings I use in Distiller. The impression I get is that I can't get the resolution to exceed 150ppi or so. It is a fairly old version of Distiller (4.0) so maybe I just need to upgrade it, but would be delighted if anyone could shed some light on what the problem might be. Thank you!
