Akami installer?

I downloaded a purchased CS5 on the Adobe site. There are two ways to download and install. One is the Akami installer? The other is called alternative. I choose alternative but am not sure that was the right choice. Does anyone have any idea what this all is and what to do?

Here's Adobe's FAQ on the Akami installer. It manages Adobe downloads and installations. It's not 100% necessary, and what you did is also OK. It just automates the process around downloading and installing Adobe products, and I think it also helps with keeping your S/W up to date. It also keeps track of your download so that if is interrupted for whatever reason you can resume it later on.
