This is correct...the path structure of the links in the PDF retain the
structure of whatever the path structure was of the computer created on.
For example...c:\path\pdf\PDF  Since you are trying to link them via a web
protocal, you are going to have to go in and use the weblink feature of
Acrobat to change all the links to the correct protocal.

To do this, select the "Link" tool in the toolbar (looks like a chain link
icon), if using PC; right click on the link and select properties.  From the
dialog box that pops up, click on the drop-down list and select the World
Wide Web Link option.  Click ok ok...etc..

To create a link, select the "Link" tool, draw your link and then select the
correct link protocal that you wish to use.
