Ok. So, I kept searching, and found, on the centosfaq, someone a couple 
years ago announcing a 32 wine library for C 7. I installed that... and 
using WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32, I could finally run their setup.

Great. !.something, while Adobe has 3, 4.5 and 4.8

Now, I can run the ADE... except I don't remember my password from years 
ago, and both the "forgot Adobe ID *and* the "forgot password" goes to 
and Adobe 404 page.

I have notified ebooks.com of their need to update the Linux page....
