I need some advice on a CD project that involves some HTML and PDF files on CD-ROM. Here are three issues I am hoping to unravel...

1. AutoRun
My autorun works dandy on PCs but a Mac doesn't know what to do. I have several files in the "root" and I'm wondering if that might be the problem. IOW, if there is just my "index" PDF in the root directory of the CD will the Mac open that file?

2. Exit Option
Currently I have a couple of PDFs that are launched from a browser link in a new window. My plan was to include an "Exit" option in the Bookmark window. It works fine when viewed in Acrobat- but when launched via the web browser it won't allow it to close the browser.

3. Open Option
To avoid the above I would love to avoid opening Acrobat within IE. How do I open a PDF from a hyperlink without it opening Acrobat within the browser?
