Topic: Linking multiple pdf files to a master index

I need to be able to link (approximately 40) separate pdf files to a master (bookmark list). In other words I want to have a file called "index.pdf" that contains a complete index of bookmarks (shown in the left side navigation window) and a title page shown in the document (right side) window. As the bookmarks are selected, each of these separate pdf files are displayed in the existing document window. I want the bookmarks (navigation pane) to display all the time, while the contents of the document window change depending on what bookmark is selected. I do not want another window to open to display the selected bookmark file.

Unfortunately Adobe's technical support says Adobe Acrobat 6 Standard cannot do this task (and it seems like a simple thing to be able to do). Does anyone know if other versions of Acrobat, another software package, a Java script or another work-around can do what I need? One other requirement, the completed document must be viewable in Acrobat 5.0 (and above) with the same viewing properties as noted above. Any suggestions?
