Linked Flash Files appear fine from local host but not on server

I am hosting my own web space through a service (TZO) because of a dynamic ip address.

I have a simple navigation menu designed in flash.  It links the menu buttons through a shared library to host file (i.e menubuttons.swf -> menuphoto.swf)  This second swf file is then embeded into an html file as the header.

My HTML files view fine from windows explorer and in dreamweaver but not from the server side which only shows the second swf file and none of the linked components.

I have checked this site for answers to similar issues and none have worked.

Nevermind, I have found the problem.

Linking in Flash should be by the absolute server path, not the local machine path (i.e. www.lauzondr.com/p-folio.html instead of c:\my documents\my webs\...)

I guess I should have posted this in the flash section, sorry.

I know you already figured this out but maybe you could give me some points for it! :)

here's the answer...
