Another method of accomplishing this is to make an additional change when you install the PDF iFilter. Add an "OpenControl" statement to the end of the Maping Key line for your PDF document type so that the line looks like the following:

<Mapping Key="pdf" Value="AdobdPDF.png" OpenControl="AdobeAcrobat.OpenDocuments"/>

In addition to allowing you to open the PDF directly in Adobe you will also see a new option in the File menu of Acrobat that allows you to check the document in and out as well as edit any metadata with the document.

It should be noted that whether the library is set to require check out or not the user will be prompted to check the document out when they open it.
