Just how do you want to insert i?. As a standard link using the pdf format and allow browsers who know which plug-in to use to open it or as a download link?

Prep: Zip the file and upload it to the directory/folder of choice.

Here's How (basically):

1. Upload the zipped file you want people to download to your Web server.
2. Write down or copy/paste the URL pointing to the file.
3. Open your Web page in FrontPage.
4. Type "download this file".
5. Highlight that phrase, and right-click on it.
6. Choose "hyperlink".
7. In the "Address" box, type in the full URL of the file for download.
8. Save your Web page.
9. Upload the page to your Web server.
10. Test that the download link works.

Example of links using image or text:

Image -
<p><a href="URL path to external link" title="Mouseover Description"><img style="width: XXpx; height: YYpx; border: 0;" src="Path to image" alt="Text Description"></a></p>

Text Link only -

<p><a href="URL path to external link" title="Mouseover Description">Link Text Description</a></p>

You can change the "p" tags to div tags and style as needed to make a nice div container for image links.[/code]
