How can I have smooth scrolling in Adobe Acrobat (Pro)?

For instance when dragging the scrollbar, I want the document to scroll with the dragging, in real time.

Thanks!

It should already do that. Acrobat 6 right?

Which OS and which version are you using?
Weed is right, it should do this without any special settings.

Adobe Acrobat 6 Pro, Windows XP Home. Doesn't seem to do it automatically

You are right, the scrollbar does not give you smooth scrolling. I'm always using the mouse wheel, which is a lot better than what the scrollbar does. It also depends on the zoom factor and the page mode you are running Acrobat in. You need to be in "Continous" mode to get better scrolling, in page mode it just jumps from one area of the page the the next area.
There are no settings in Acrobat to have it work differently.

What you can do get better scrolling without using the scrollbar is to use the hand tool (which is active by default), and then click anywhere on the page, and drag the page image around (either up and down, to mimic the scrolling behavior of the scroll bar).

It jumps in fixed increments (both on XP and OS X). You are not able to scroll pixel by pixel, which you can do when you "grab" the page.
