Installation worked, but command doesn't

Have just downloaded and installed Acrobat Reader 9.  Am running Linux Fedora 12 (Constantine) and GNOME 2.28.0.  Don't want to use "evince" (GNOME version of PDF file reader). No errors from Reader installation, but am unable to execute the "acroread" command (either manually from directory where file is located or clicking on icon from list of applications). 


Error message reads:

/opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread: error while loading shared libraries: cannot enable executable stack as shared object requires: Permission denied


I know enough UNIX/Linux to fix minor problems, but am NOT a programmer, so am unable to understand how to fix.  Any Linux system users out there with suggestions??  Thanx!
