adobe freeware question

I've just downloaded the adobe reader for a solaris 8 box of mine. I try to unzip it as it is is tar.gz format and get a binary error ?

how can I unzip this thing and get the reader going ?

have you really unzipped it...?
the *.tar.gz files you have to gunzip it

# gunzip reader.tar.gz
# tar -xf reader.tar

or you could make it in one logical row:

# zcat reader.tar.Z | tar xf -
