Can you supply a link so we can take a look?

When you were creating the link it may of used the absolute path:
<img src=file:///c...  Dreamweaver has problems with this type of link.  You want it to be:

<img src="path/to/file.jpg" ...

Again, I will be able to help more if I have code to look at.

I don't think it's the img src problem...
Here's the test page I put up.

Oh, you are using the event handlers in the <object> tag.  Netscape does not reconize event handlers for the <object> tag. The only way around it is not to use Flash buttons and use image buttons instead.

Don't use Flash buttons. It's not a good choice for navigation. Anything that requires ANY plugin (no matter how prevalent it's supposed to be) is not a good choice for navigation.

Anybody who doesn't have the correct plugin won't be able to do anything, and then you've lost them forever. Not good.

No plug in is going to work. You just can't you the flash button. For it to work you have to replace the flash button with an image button and use:

<a href="#" onMouseover="..." onMouseOut="..."><img src="mybutton.gif"></a>
