PDF Map with Photo Pop Ups

I need to produce a PDF map for offline viewing, and the users want to be able to click on points on the map and have JPEG photos taken from those locations appear on screen. How do I do this with ArcGIS 9.3.1?

Mapping Center Answer:

There is a solution but it is not PDF-based.  You can use ArcReader (which anyone can download and use without having to obtain an ArcGIS software license) to display a map document that was created using hyperlinks.  The hyperlinks in the map will still be accessible when the map is viewed in ArcReader.
