problem running from a CD on Mac

Hi all,

I'm really in a bind, so any help on this will be greatly appreciated!!!....

I've got a standalone application. It is a slide-show type app, with about 
10 pages, lots of graphics. Has a background graphic that is grouped (a 
singe image in the group) so it can be placed on each page at layer 1. I 
create a standalone file (on the Mac). Test it and it runs fine from the 
mac's hard drive.

However, if I burn the files to a CD, everything works except that the 
background image (its about 40 k in size) does not show up. This is the one 
that is grouped. It's missing on each page. I created my own kind of 
message box to query the app when it is running from the CD, and it says 
that it is visible, in the proper location, etc.

If I then copy the files from the CD over to the hard drive, it runs 
perfectly, the background image is visible as it should be.

We've got a similar program that works the same way (different content, 
images) but it has no problems.

Any ideas would be very welcome.

TIA
Leston
