Hi. I'm a novice at the forum and realize that this question was asked before but I couldn't locate the answer(s). Please help.

I need to create a CD with a table-of-contents pdf file in its root and lots of pdf files in folders that need to be openable through links on the appropriate t4ext strings in the TOC. Using the standard Acrobat 6.0 link tool in Windows XP SP1, I generate links that remember the absolute path to files, that is, the letter assigned to CD-RW drive on my PC (H) stays there, and files cannot be found when the CD is viewed on another PC with a smaller number of partitions on the main hard disks. I was unable to find a tip in Acrobat 6 Help.

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
