Looking for a link validation program

I'm looking for a local HTML link validation program.  I have my own Tech CD and I made a web page interface for it.  A "MANUAL.HTM" sits in the root directory of the CD and then there is a \MANUAL directory were all of the aux. JPEGs, GIFs and HTML pages are stored.  Within this HTML interface there are links to programs and PDF files.  What I want a program to do is to go through and verify the correct paths exist to these files.  Unforunately, the only link verifiers I can find only work with URLs that start with http or resolve to an IP address.  I need something that will check the links in manual.htm offline (and something that doesn't require perl or anything special).  A simply Win32 program would be nice, either shareware or freeware.

Thanks!

I gave you an extra 50 points...you actually solved two problems with this program!  First, it does exactly what I want.  Also, it flags filenames not adhering to the 8.3 format as missing, which is exactly what I want as I will be burning this CD in ISO9660 format (so it's bootable).

Thanks!
