it lets you burst the document into individual pages and make
a new one in the order you like. (easier than acrobat writer IMO)

ah yes, pdflatex may want images to be in pdf format already.
pain in the neck but there are many other work-alikes which
do not have that restriction. I'll have to look up what method
LyX uses, perhaps latex to PostScript then ps2pdf: try
latex to dvi with `latex`, then `dvipdfm`, or `dvips`+`ps2pdf`?

latex is a beautiful thing when it works, and a pita when
it needs tweaking. try changing the paper size or margins. ??
