<x-flowed>Thanks to Gerben and Ross for responding to the seminar/landscape and 
hyperlinks queries. As I mentioned earlier, "problem's solved" but I'll 
just mention a couple of things that tripped me, for everyone else's 

a) Landscape mode: I was using \usepackage[dvips]{hyperref} which always 
worked for me in the past (with OzTeX) and I continued to use this with 
pdftex .. instead of dropping the dvips option

a) Hyperlinks in pdf: The previewer in TeXShop displays PDF files but 
doesn't follow hyperlinks. So even if the hyperlinks were there all along, 
I didn't know that, and kept thinking they weren't being produced

As of now I'm real happy with my TeX installations on OSX. Way to go!!
