Topic: Acrobat Reader Runtime?

I am new to Adobe Acrobat, but I would like to create a CD with an autorun feature that executes a version of the Adobe/Acrobat reader to display a series of linked .pdf files.
First off, I have Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Pro along with Reader v6.02 installed on my PC. No other versions of Adobe/Acrobat Reader are installed.
I have a CD from a conference that presents the conference whitepapers, event schedule, sponsors, etc - all in .pdf form. The CD uses Autorun to execute an install routine, which says it is installing Acrobat Reader, then Acrobat executes displaying the opening .pdf. All the other .pdf pages are linked from the opening page. Acrobat Reader's help menu shows that the version is 4. When I exit Acrobat, and check my system for installed programs, I see that I still have only Adobe Reader v6.02 installed - but no trace of Acrobat Reader v4.
The CD has a subdirectory containing Acrobat Reader, complete with a Setup.exe. Is there a runtime version or mode of execution for the Reader that doesn't require the normal setup/install? I doesn't seem as if v4 is being uninstalled after I exit the Reader.
I'd like to create a similar CD, so I'd like to understand how this is being accomplished. Any help is appreciated.
