I am trying to get my FAVICON working on my website. http://tilttest.thetii.com 

I've made the favicon and got it working with Chrome, but when I try to open the website in Internet Explorer 8 it does not work. I created the 32x32 pixel image and saved as a .ico file.

http://tilttest.thetii.com/favicon.ico

I placed the favicon.ico file into the root of my website C:\inetpub\wwwroot\tilt_QA and I added <link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="http://tilttest.thetii.com/favicon.ico" /> to the initial page for testing.

Any other ideas from people?

Chrome is usually very good about instantly showing your favicons. Other browsers, IE and Firefox, can take a little longer to add the favicon.  Make sure that the favicon is saved in the root folder of your site (it looks like it is already) and then give it a little time to show up.

Works for me... as a favicon and as image download.

Maybe you should flush your browser cache.

Use this both lines in <HEAD> section:
  <link rel="icon" href="xxx.ico" type="image/x-icon">
  <link rel="shortcut icon" href="xxx.ico" type="image/x-icon">

Done all three, and the favicon has been in place for two days now. Even after deleting all of the files and visiting the site on a computer that has never been to it, I am still not seeing it in IE.

I tried this as well. The full link nor the relative location works.
