Standalone on CD Path Issues

Hello all,

Is there any good tutorials on dealing with path issues for a  
standalone on mac and windows from a CD or DVD?

I have worked through this once in the past but for the life of me I  
can't remember what needs done. I know there was an issue with a CD  
and windows and something about not putting things at the root level????

If there are not any tutorials then I will track it down on my own  
like last time but I was hoping there was a recipe: It should include  
Mac, Windows, Linux and external libraries and external image folders  
and or sound folders. It should include folder placement, external  
placement, and maybe icon and installer issues.

Anyway, the DVD I burned works on Mac but on WIndows it will not find  
the external images and sounds for the stack and it will not load the  
external libraries from the Standalone process. RR puts them in a  
folder called Externals but they are not loaded.

This seems such a common if not often issue that a set of scripts and  
folder placement should be rather standard.

Thanks in advance
