Is it required that you use an absolute path? If not, I recommend using a relative path. It's just less icky.

yes you need an absolute path in other words not coming from your drive but a web address upload the file to a domain via ftp then link from there as stated above if you link from your hard drive when other try to view it it wont be on thier harddrive
