This is how I would do it;

Go here and save the package to your desktop. Open terminal, type
Code:
cd /home/you/Desktop
Replace you with your name, then run
Code:
sudo chmod 755 AdbeRdr9.1.2-1_i486linux_enu.bin
enter password, hit enter, then run
Code:
./AdbeRdr9.1.2-1_i486linux_enu.bin
Adobe will install reader for you now. Choose /opt or /home directory for installation.

For flash player go here and select deb. package. Instructions.

For Air go here, then install it like the reader.

From the sound of it the OP wants more than just the reader, he wants the whole suite. There may not be a Gnu/Linux equivalent for the whole Creative Suite.

WINE will run LOTS of "big windows based software", including, I believe, most of the Creative Suite.

You might also be interested in CrossOver (http://codeweavers.com) This is the commercial (paid) version of WINE and has some user-friendly features.

There are lists at the codeweavers' site--and the the WINE site---showing what SW works.

Of course WINE can it just can't always run everything. I would suggest a google search on installing Adobe Creative Suite in Linux and see what comes up.

You may need to look into something like crossover office based on WINE it is modified by a company to be more compatible than WINE itself.

Or if you have a valid Windows license key for XP, or Vista Business or Vista Ultimate (Or hell just install the Windows 7 RC candidate) in a virtual machine and run your adobe software there. You could use any number of Virtualization tools to do it, like VirtualBox, or VMWare Server

That company is Codeweavers and they employ at least some of the key WINE developers. CrossOver is not a modification of WINE---it IS WINE (Plus a GUI interface, and maybe some optimizations for different things.)

Correct.

But linux has many good applications that are as useful and productive (if not more so) than windows.

Maybe you should try them, then you wouldn't have to bother with wine (or pay for them).

If you really want "all windows based software", then you'll have to run windows.

I have Wine running on my Ubuntu 9 workstation, so far I have not been able to install Photoshop CS2 but it did work on Fedora 11, not sure what I did differently.

Here's the Wine support page for your reference, they have many applications recorded and listed for what works and what doesn't.

Check the web for crossover linux. It is a commercial wine offering that does support Adobe CS and CS2.

CS2 is supported, you should usually run the latest versions of wine. I compile mine, even on 64bit, and most windows programs run. though gimp is a good alternative to wine

You mean that GIMP is a good alternative to Photoshop.....Yes, it is---for most uses.

First, to run stuff under wine, check the wine application database, that's what it is for. There's no need to duplicate that info here:

http://appdb.winehq.org/

Bear in mind that not everything will work, that the latest and greatest usually will never work, and that even when it works, there might be some limitations

Second, if you are going to use linux just to run 400 windows programs, you should really consider why do you want to run linux at all. You would probably be better using windows.
