Remember to cover the basics, that is, what you expected to happen and
what in fact did happen.  You don't know how to make a good report?  See

Your bug report will be posted to the Org-mode mailing list.

Links to external pdf files do not work in org-mode. Links do not export
properly
into PDF files. Links to web addresses and other file types such as text
files work fine, however.
 
To reproduce: create a link in your org file in any form,
e.g. [[file:/full_path/whatever.pdf]],
[[file:/full_path/whatever.pdf][Label for file]], file:whatever.pdf.
 
1) The link will not work from within org-mode.
2) The link will not be properly formatted when viewed in a PDF viewer
such as Adobe Acrobat Professional. To make the link work, the link's
properties have to be manually edited from within Adobe Acrobat/

I cannot reproduce this with Org-mode version 7.7
(release_7.7.311.g0c099), so I'd suspect your 6.33 (which is quite old,
but unfortunately still ships with older versions of emacs). If you are
at all serious about using org-mode, you probably need to install the
7.7 release (or if you are willing to live on the edge, clone the git
repository and enjoy all the up-to-date features - and some breakages,
but ime, breakages get fixed quickly).

I cannot reproduce it with

GNU Emacs 23.2.1 (i486-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.20.0) of 2010-12-11 on raven, modified by Debian

Org-mode version 6.33f (release_6.33f)

neither. The minimal Emacs initfile used:

,----
| (add-to-list 'load-path "~/projects/org-mode/org-mode/lisp")
| (add-to-list 'load-path "~/projects/org-mode/org-mode/contrib/lisp")
| (add-to-list 'load-path "~/projects/org-mode/org-mode/testing/")
| (require 'org-install)
| (require 'org)
`----

If I use C-c C-o on the links Org starts my PDF viewer (xpdf 3.02), if
I export the document with the link to PDF and open the result with
xpdf the exported link works, too.

What exactly happens if you try to open the link and which properties
do you have to modify to make the exported link working?

Best,
