Here's something for Windows-bound linkers, from Peter Gutman's page at:

"To view some of the documents referenced on this page you'll need a 
copy of the free Adobe Acrobat reader software (note: This link takes 
you to Acrobat 5.1, which avoids the very buggy and unstable Acrobat 
6 or the bloated mess that is Acrobat 7 which Adobe will force on you 
if you get it from their main download site). Alternatively, if 
you're running Windows, you can try the Foxit PDF Reader, which is 
what the Acrobat reader would be if it lost about 15MB of bloat and 
ran about 50 times faster than it does."


[For security congnoscenti:  I'm chipper.  I was on Peter's page 
because I'm finally going to get to meet the bloke.  (We were 
supposed to be in a authentication project team together some years 
ago, but the company went belly-up in mysterious circumstances).  I'm 
going to meet him in a month's time in, of all places, Cambridge 
Computer Lab.  I contacted Ross Anderson to set up a meeting with 
Ross, and got a bonus, because Peter's presenting there the same day 
I'm there]
