Yes, you need to be "root". Did you get a # prompt after the su process? Can you do "mkdir /usr/local/Acrobat5" when root? What do you get when you type "ls -ld /usr/local"?

Yes, i get a # instead of a $ after the su... i tried the acrobat installation again after the su and it didn't work but i didn't try a manual mkdir

Yup, mkdir /usr/local/Acrobat5 works when I do the su. I double checked and it did make the folder in local

Great, glad it finally worked. It must have been a problem with the script in making the directory. I just upgraded to test (had 5.05, this is 5.08), and mine worked. What version is your acroread. If it is not 5.08, you can get the latest for linux with the following (or use your browser):

wget http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adob...nux-508.tar.gz

Use the same process to update, it will just overwrite the existing files.
