Shortcuts with GPO

I am creating a desktop GPO for a link to a website.  I created the GPO for this and then went to User Settings, Preferences, windows settings, and shortcut. I created the policy and added a path for the icon in the Icon line.  Everything works and the shortcut is being pushed out to the user desktops, but the Icon is not showing up on the shortcut.  It is just a plain icon like an empty page witht the title below it.  I don't have anything in the Icon Index and don't know if I need to have something there or what it would be.  Does anyone know why it is not pushing the icon out with the link?

Is the icon path local or on a server? If local make sure that ALL systems actually do have that icon. Are you using format c:\folder\icon or \\systemname\folder\icon?

That fixed.  I pushed the icon out to the folder and designated that folder in my icon line.
