Adobe Reader in RHEL4

Hi,

Anyone knows if RHEL4 is packaged with Adobe Acrobat Reader?

I need Adobe Reader in linux to open PDF file. There's a download on adobe site but I think that requires some dollars to avail the software. May be if RHEL4 has Adobe Reader package with it, there is no need to spend dollars.

Thank You.

xpdf also reads pdf files. See if you have /usr/bin/xpdf

This is informative vino but just check it and I don't have it (/usr/bin/xpdf) in my RHEL4.
By the way, How do I check softwares installed on a RHEL4 system?
