Topic: Reading Linked PDFs over Web

I have a library of approximately 225 linked PDFs which was designed for distribution on a CD. I now need to distribute it on the web. It must be accessible to Windows and Mac platforms and through both Netscape and Internet Explorer. My user base is not very computer literate.
In Netscape, I can set up Reader as a plug-in and move through the library. However with Internet Explorer, the PDF automatically downloads. Sometimes it opens in Acrobat Reader, but because the file is being read from the user's local drive, none of the links work. Some times, the file won't open at all. If, by some miracle, Reader opens in the IE browser and one can follow a link, IE freezes or gives an error message that a file can't be found after about three links.
Is there anyway to setup Internet Explorer to follow links on our server, rather than downloading the file?
Is there a way to check the user's computer to see if Acrobat Reader is installed properly?
