To install Acrobat Reader 5.0.9, follow these steps:

- Make sure you have at least 30 MB of available disk space
- Install Reader 5.0.9 by running the INSTALL script

First you have to untar the file:
mingdao@paul:~$ tar -zxvf linux-509.tar.gz
After that you might want to read this file
mingdao@paul:~$ pico ./README
Next you're ready to install
mingdao@paul:~/downloads$ ./INSTALL (not ./script)

NB: Unless you're logged in as root, issue
mingdao@paul:~/downloads$ su -c "./INSTALL"
Password: enter your root password
and accept the license agreement, then it will say ->
Enter installation directory for Acrobat 5.0.9 [/usr/local/Acrobat5]
and hit enter and it will install and you're done.
To launch the app from cli issue
mingdao@paul:~$ /usr/local/Acrobat5/bin/acroread
or put that path in a menu to launch.

Hey, it's not polite to hijack someone else's thread. Go to that link
in my sig and please read that stuff.

Anyway, did you untar the file first? Sorry for leaving that step out.
Rather than post more, I'll edit my original post...

After it "runs through the license agreement" did you type "accept"?

Hold Shift and press Z Z to move on out of the license agreement. The license agreement is using vi.
