[pdftex] bookmarks and zooming with pdflatex + hyperref + acrobat reader

i am struggling w/the following "problem":
i would like to make pdf documents which upon opening
in acrobat reader set their zoom to "Fit Width".

please find attached the 2 examples.
test1:  the hyperref package is not used.  when this document
	is opened, it is zoomed to the value specified in
	Edit -> Preferences -> Display -> Default Zoom
	which is fine.  (although it would be nice to instruct
	it to do so explicitly...)
test2:  the hyperref package is used.  the documentation for hyperref
	says, that "bookmarks" is default false, and even get a warning
	when specifying it again, nevertheless it is necessary, else
	the bookmarks are opened and the document is scaled to
	"Fit in Window".  if "bookmarks=false" is given, the document
	is still scaled to "Fit in Window".

how can i use hyperref and at the same time tell acrobat reader
to zoom to "Fit to Width" and not show the bookmarks?

also, does pdf(la)tex include primitives for specifying such
goodies as open at page number x, zoom to y, or without hyperref
it is not possible?  forgive my pdf barbarism..

pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-1.10b (Web2C 7.4.5) (format=pdflatex 2003.8.18)
hyperref 2003/01/22 v6.73n Hypertext links for LaTeX

ps. i hope this is not off-topic and/or dead-beaten already...
the best armor is to keep out of range.
