Where would I normally be expected to place an Access database file so that my coldfusion pages can find it?

My root directory is currently...
C:\CFusionMX\wwwroot

Thanks

The database can be placed almost anywhere on the location.  Just enter the path to your database when you're creating the datasource in the CF Admin

c:\somefolder\yourDatabase.mdb
