Convert Adobe Digital editions to Linux ?

Hello,
I bought a howto manual in this format before I realised that it was delivered in a non compatible format for my laptop.
Do anyone know of a converter or a compatible software for linux ?

So, I installed Wine and ADE on top. The app seems to open fine, but how do I download the book on this linux laptop. I have a link from the merchant that downloads a file (URLLink.acsm).
When I try a right link on this and that I chose ADE as an app, ADE fires up but I have a message saying that it's sorry but it cannot open this file !
I have registered this instance of ADE with Adobe to make sure that the DRM system allows me to use an ebook on several computer....
Please help ! I'm feeling so close to make it work...

[update] : it takes a drag and drop only of the *.acsm file into ADE to start the actual download of the ebook !
Thanks a lot
