I have Window 2003 Server Running .Net 2.0 IIS 6.0

I am using the Asp:login Control and want to disaplay and image on it.

I uploaded the image to App_Data but ...

http://<server2003>/<project>/App_Data/image.gif     does not work!!

http://<server2003/<project>/login.aspx   works fine!

Any ideas as to why the image does not show

P.S. copying the image to wwwroot/images works fine i.e.  http://<server2003>/images/image.gif  Image Displays!

    I believe App_Data will only server certain types of data. Why would you want to put it in app data? How about app_themes or simply an images folder?
