There is no problem on FO side, but on Acrobat Reader side. AR has 
problems with relative links on file system. You can't create reasonably 
workable relative links to files like "userguide.pdf", 
"installation.pdf". This works only with HTTP URLs which means that you 
must put all PDFs on web-server. Not very usable if you want to 
distribute linked PDF documents on CD-ROM.

I know that we were solving same problem with PDFs generated by pdfTeX 
and only particular solution was to use embedded java web-server on CD-ROM.
