I checked the FAQ and this question has no answer there. I tried the way 
suggested by the PDF User Manual:


and I get an error:

Error: pdflatex (file Panin-G4.tif): unknown type of image
 ==> Fatal error occurred, the output PDF file is not finished!

I use TeXLive2003 distribution and the image looks like this:

$ identify -verbose Panin-G4.tif
TIFF Directory at offset 0x8
  Subfile Type: multi-page document (2 = 0x2)
  Image Width: 1200 Image Length: 1800
  Resolution: 300, 300 pixels/inch
  Bits/Sample: 1
  Compression Scheme: CCITT Group 4
  Photometric Interpretation: min-is-white
  FillOrder: msb-to-lsb
  Artist: "1996-98 AccuSoft Inc., All rights reserved"
  Date & Time: "2004: 3:04 02:42:57"
  Software: "ImageGear Version:  6.06.033"
  Orientation: row 0 top, col 0 lhs
  Samples/Pixel: 1
  Rows/Strip: 1800
  Planar Configuration: single image plane
  Page Number: 0-548

.... (and all other pages up to 548 like the above).

What is the correct way of inserting such TIFF files at a given resolution 
(300dpi) in PDF, one page per PDF page?

Kind regards
