Installing Adobe Acrobat Reader

No matter what I try it won't install... it says to run the install script but it refuses to run.

daniel@bob:~$ ./install
-bash: ./install: No such file or directory
daniel@bob:~$ sh install
install: /usr/bin/install: cannot execute binary file
And clicking it doesn't work either. I'm running Slackware 9.1 with a custom kernel 2.6.6.

1. Unix is case sensitive. Try "./INSTALL", all upper-case.

2. When you used sh, it looked in your path and tried to run "/usr/bin/install". "sh ./INSTALL" might have worked better.
