How does one go about setting the opening of a PDF to "Preview" globally.
Currently we can only set it one file at a time.
The reason for this is that acrobat will not work on our macs, the PDF either displays as partial blank pages or it locks up and we end up force quiting.
I have done the "Open with other" and checked the "Always open with" but that doesn't seem to take on some machines.
We currently have a mix of OS 10.5 and 10.6.

Try right clicking a PDF file and then choose Get Info from the menu. In the "Open with" section choose Preview and then below it click on the "Change All..." button.

FYI--I believe Acrobat 8.1.2 was the first version that was compatible with 10.5. 8.1 and earlier were really buggy as they were released prior to 10.5. If you have 8.0, you should be able to click Help > Check for Updates to get 8.1.2. Anything earlier simply won't work at all.
Also, since Preview is an acceptable alternative for you, then you could uninstall the older version of Acrobat and download the newest version of the Adobe Reader which is a free download.
Adobe - Adobe Reader download - All versions
Just a couple ideas which may or may not apply to your situation...
