If you absolutely need the original Adobe version, you can get it from their website. I believe it comes as a self-installing package, but installation instructions should be included in any case.

However, you might instead look into the many other readers out there. There's kpdf, xpdf and several others that can provide basic reader capabilities.

There are many different versions of a PDF reader in linux.

There is gpdf, kdpf, acroread, xpdf just to name a few.

Installation instructions can most likely be found on the respective websites, or use your distributions package manager to install them.

Good luck.

The actual question was "Where can I get a Linux version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Go to the Adobe website, follow the link to "Get Adobe reader", then select the version you need. If you're using an RPM-based distro (as your profile says you are) then you can download the RPM version and install it the same way as any other RPM package.
