I created a website that is offline so it all just runs off of a flash drive, the problem is when I hyperlinked I did it to the flash drive folder - ie F:\files\filename.ext - if the flash drives mounts in their computer as anything other than F it wont work.  Is there an easy way to get around this issue?
I just converted from word to html as it is really basic stuff...

Yes, use paths like images/image.jpg, or links like: links/link.html. And if you want to go back one directory type: ../

That way the page does not use a particular drive letter

When using /images/image.jpg does it assume current directory then?

don't use /images/image.jpg just use images/image.jpg - no leading forward slash

In answer to your question "does it assume the current directory?" No. It assumes a folder named "images" in the current directory. The path for an image in the current directory is just the image name. If you have a folder in your current directory named "images" and the images you want are inside that folder, then you would do as dmeeren suggested images/image.jpg or whatever your image is named.
