You can download rpm file from site of Adobe

Just a suggestion if you want to skip adobe, evince is a very light and fast pdf reader, and it is probably in the repository of your distribution.

From Adobe site i downloaded AdbeRdr9.5.3-1_i486linux_enu.bin. Then i used following commands
#su
# chmod +x AdbeRdr9.5.3-1_i486linux_enu.bin
# ./AdbeRdr9.5.3-1_i486linux_enu.bin

Extracting files, please wait. (This may take a while depending on the configuration of your machine)

This installation requires 136 MB of free disk space.

Enter installation directory for Adobe Reader 9.5.3 [/opt]

Now when I check /opt directory I don find any such file or folder.

Please suggest what should I do.

evince or Ocular are WAY better on a linux OS
If at all possible avoid using Adobe's "reader" like the plague ( black death)

to install a program in /opt you MUST do it as root .

Also "evince" is already installed ( BY default ) for Gnome , and Ocular is installed ,by default, for KDE
