Adobe Reader Redistributable – hard to find

For some reason Adobe seem to make it difficult to find a "redistributable" version of Adobe Reader (V9).  If you go to their web site you can click to download a copy of the Reader and your only option seems to be to have it basically auto install on the machine you are on.   The current Version 9 Reader is over 25MB in size, so if you have half a dozen machines in your household then you basically need to download it individually on each machine so 25MB 6 times, 150MB just to get one program updated.
 
Fortunately I found this FTP link on one of the Adobe Forums where you can download an executable that will install on the local machine.
