    Hello, I'm trying to install the acrobat plug in for Netscape/Mozilla
    1.5 RC 2

    I follow the directions listed in the INSTGUIDE.TXT file

    "<i>To run the installation script:

    1. Change to the directory containing the installation script. If you are
    installing Acrobat Reader from a CD-ROM, change to the appropriate
    directory on the CD-ROM.

    2. Start the installation script. The filename of the script may be
    uppercase or lowercase depending on your system for example:

    # ./INSTALL

    3. Follow the instructions that appear on your screen.</i>"


    After the ./INSTALL command I get a license agreement in the terminal
    window that I can't figure out how to get past. It doesn't give me an
    option to say "yes" or "no". Instead at the end of the file it says...
    "YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE FOREGOING AGREEMENT WAS INDICATED DURING
    INSTALLATION."

    How do I get past this ????
