linked media when running on server

If I have a Revolution "thin client" that just has a simple "go to stack 
http://stackfromserver " type of logic, and I want that stack on the server to 
pull in images stored on the server, instead of stored within the stack, do I 
need to do something special with the pathnames to the graphics?

The reason I ask, is because on my server, I've got a .rev file called 
"calendar.rev", which pulls in images, "backgroundA.bmp", or "backgroundB.bmp", 
depending on a variable that gets set.  If I have these images stored in the same 
directory as the .rev file on the server, and set the sourcefile name under 
"PROPERTIES" for that image to "backgroundA.bmp" - - I get a blank object when 
the app gets run from the local PC.  (The app that has the "go to stack on 
server" call.)  The other elements display fine - - - it's just the background 
image that's missing, (it's a gray rectangle), which makes me think it's a path
