I also run CentOS 3, and hit this same issue.  I have Adobe Reader 
7.0.1, which doesn't have this requirement for gtk+ 2.4 or higher.  I'm 
not sure why Adobe introduced this requirement in the middle of the 
7.0.X series.  I posted a question on the Adobe forums about it, but 
haven't seen any type of reply.  If you need 7.0.1 and can't find it, 
e-mail me off list and I'll put it up for download...
