Default Filling in / saving pdf forms in Reader?

I've just been dumped into converting printed forms to interactive pdf's, something I've never done before. It doesn't seem hard, except that I'm assuming that most people will be using Reader, not the full Acrobat, to complete the forms, and I can't figure out how to make them savable once the data is entered in Reader. I know it's possible - I have a sample where it works, but every time I try entering data in Reader to my new form, it tells me that it cannot be saved, and that I should print a copy before closing the file.

At work, I have the fairly old Acrobat 5, but I own Acrobat 8, and am willing to use it if necessary.

Also, any suggestions on the best way to protect the form from changes, and to require the data to be "Saved As," not written to the original file?

Many thanks.
