Since PDF isn't like a Word document, you can't simply pluck a page and
store it away, each page in the PDF is a integral part of the whole file -
take one page away and the whole thing probably would be unviewable.

If you are on the Windows platform you can take advantage of IAC to 'split'
the pages out, if you want something already built then I would look into
ARTS Split/Merge Wizard

If you are trying to do this on a server then none of the above can be used,
also note that Acrobat can't be used in a Network scenario - license
