You can still have images display in design view without the images being located in the root folder of your site.  DW will make a relative path to your image until you save your document.  You should copy every image you are planning to use in your site into the root folder of your site directory.

Have you uploaded the images to the webserver?  If you are using preview page then zenlion420's answer is correct.  But if you have saved the page and are just trying to view it inthe browser then you need to upload the images along with the files to the website.  You can have DW upload dependent files everytime you upload a page which can help.
