Acrobat Reader Search Function


Hello,
I was wondering if there is an Acrobat 6 for linux? Acrobat 6 has a search function wherein you can search within multiple PDF documents...

or is there a free linux application that can do the same function?

Thanks for your time...

Based from the no reply I received, I could say that there is no equivalent feature of what I'm looking for (at least none yet)

Acrobat Reader search plugin?

So what's the scoop with this feature in Linux? The new version 7 has come out since this was originally posted, but still no search plugin...very sad Adobe. I tried opening up a PDF in Firefox and using the browser's search tool, but alas...no go. I can't remember if I did an apt-get to install this from the Ubuntu reps or if I downloaded/installed the tarball from the Adobe site. Does it make a difference? Is the search plugin included in one or the other? I can always use Kpdf...nice little program and the search function works.
