You can reduce the size of the page so that the whole page is visible in 
the Acrobat Reader window. Or you can view the PDF in either GV (like 
Ghostview) or Xpdf, my personal favorite.  Xpdf also does a refresh, so 
that if you generate an updated pdf file then just keying the letter "r" 
in the xpdf window will refresh the document while retaining the current 
page number.  Very handy.
