Hey so, unusual question, but...

I've got to put together a CD that will be sent out to a load of people that went to a conference, and the CD is supposed to contain a load of .pdfs (abstracts for papers) that can be viewed through an interactive menu by Title/Author/how-boring-it-is/etc. Also it might be nice to have a search function in it.

What's the best way of doing this? It needs to run on macs and windows... Macromedia Director sprung to mind, but I researched it a bit and it doesn't look too hot. Someone said you could actually do it in flash, is that really true? I'm basically looking for the easy way out! Cheers for any help you can give!
