[PLUG] DVD based web site

I know this is a Linux group but I also know that there is a bunch of
smart, experienced people out there so . . .
Made a small web site that is not on my server - just a bunch of html
files and links.
Simple enough - point the file manager (on Linux and on XP) at the
index.html file, tell it to open and it works just fine - all the
browsers worked fine, navigate around just fine. That is until I try it
with Internet Exploder 8 on XP. IE will not follow SOME of the links
but will follow others. In the document, the links look like
../../index.html when I hover the mouse over the link, it looks like:
file:///D:/STAGES/DVD/index.html IE cannot figure that out (however
Firefox can so I know the code is good). My guess is that there is a
setting somewhere in IE that is "protecting me from internet evil" - and
also protecting me from doing what I want to do. I know this is
possible because I have seen web sites that run stand-alone from DVDs
(which is what I ultimately want to do).
Anybody got any help here?
I've been fighting this all day and it is driving me straight to the
liquor cabinet . . .
