If there's no information on running Reader from a CD-ROM on the 
Adobe site, and it's not mentioned in the license, and no mention 
especially in the distribution requirements, it's a good bet that 
Adobe doesn't want their product to be distributed this way, even if 
it runs. Although Reader is free, it's not without licence
