Topic: Please help me design my PDF portfolio

I have only a few questions about a CD portfolio I am designing with Acrobat Professional (8.0) There were a few things i couldn't figure out on my own.
I have about 15-20 pieces to show on CD, but there is no web design involved, so I couldn't use my own web site layout to just throw onto CD, out of that convenience.

1) How do you make sure the PDF will always opens at the size you want? For example, whenever I set the document at actual size (100% view) I close and open the document, and it reopens at a random size, such as 317 percent. WTH?

2) Where can I find examples of design portfolios that were designed in Acrobat? Everyone's portfolio is online these days, which is not my style.

3) Is it possible to make a 'thumbnail view' on the first PDF page (like you would see in a gallery on a website) that links from that page to any one of the 15-20 pieces?
Any advice is much appreciated.
