Distance analysis: points to rivers

I need to find out the shortest distance of points (archaeological sites) to a stream dataset I have. I am running ArcEditor 9.3. It doesn't matter if it requires a conversion to raster-- I am using the output to find the average distance between sites and streams in order to perform an area of likely settlement analysis. Which tool should I use?
