internal website moved to server 2008 r2 64-bit (from 2003) but hyperlinks no longer work

(OP)
We have a working internal websites that have links to PDFs (work instructions, etc.) on a Windows 2003 server. I am replacing that server with Windows 2008 R2 64-bit. We use Front Page 2003 to maintain the website. When you run the website from the 2008 server the hyperlinks don't work. The UNC path is correct on the bottom of the screen (I.e file://servername/data/shared/quality/workinstruction) but nothing happens. I don't know if this is a Front Page issue, Server 2008 issue, or what. Thank you for any help you can give.

I have no idea why this would make a difference but we changed the shortcut on the PC desktop to point to http://servername instead of http://serverIPaddress. The hyperlinks now work. Must be some strange Windows 7/Server 2008/unknown factor combination.
