Sure grap the latest version rpm from Adobe:

Install it: rpm -ivh AdobeReader_enu-8.1.1-1.i486.rpm

It may complain on first usage about a missing lib, it is best (and easiest) to have one of the 32-bit firefox/seamonkey packages installed for this. In order to use it within a 64-bit browser visit the nspluginwrapper and download install both packages;

rpm -ivh nspluginwrapper*.rpm
