In theory, there should be no reason why Acrobat 5 
(hopefully updated to Acrobat 5.0.5 - get the update on
Adobe's web site at
should not work directly with Acrobat 5 unless you are using
the "save as PDF" feature.

I know of no Acrobat error messages that have numbers such
as "122" -- anything else in the error message? Any other 
software that you are using in conjunction with both
FrameMaker and Acrobat (plug-ins, etc.)?

Did you try simply rebooting your system and running Acrobat
on that document again?
