Topic: adding filename of files used to make pdf in header

I have found myself using Acrobat 6 to collect pages together and for review for a book i am working on. The bulk of the material i submit to the publisher are 1200 DPI TIFF files (finished comic pages) which they drop into a quark file - everything, including text, i finish and flattened into finished the TIFF file. It's a good system, its nice and simple, giving me plenty of control over the finished page. Opening and reviewing these TIFF files takes time so i started saving smaller (800px wide) copies of the pages in .jpg form, and using Acrobat's 'make PDF from multiple files' to make review copies.
Since these review copies rarely have all the pages in question, often missing pages between sections, etc, showing page numbers in the header/footer doesn't help me identify what page i am looking at. The filenames of the .jpg files has all the information i need, but i cannot find a way to list that filename in the header/footer or anywhere else on the page. The bookmark lists this information (each page's bookmark is the filename used for that page) but this information is not visible when i print them out (i keep an assembled version of the final book that i update as i work).
Is there a way to print this information in the header or footer? The book is 250 pages long, and adding them manually is just not an option. I've gone through the manuals and i can't seem to find the answer. Any help on this would be appreciated.
oh, i am using Adobe Acrobat 7 for Mac (came bundled with CS2). I never really thought Acrobat would be useful for me, but having it i have found myself using it more and more. It's surprisingly useful for a lot of things.
