Rollovers don't render on site built with FP

Why don't the rollover images render in the browser?

This question is more to answer a concern from a friend of mine who visited a site and found that the navigation bar is not visible, but instead there are image not found X boxes in place of the rollovers. She said that she downloaded direct x and ms update and that this is still not showing the intended navigation images.
The site was built with FP using "msnavigation" and so I am assuming that it is one of those issues that I hear about with FP components sometimes not working in all browsers.
Can anyone shed some light on this for me so that I can give her some insight.

Her message to me:

I have a question for you. On the following web page:
[left...] out to respect TOS, but happy to sticky to anyone.

my computer at the office does not show the navigation bar, instead I get white boxes with a red X and clicking on them does nothing.

I downloaded the latest version of Direct X and did Windows update, restarted the computer and it still doesn't work. Do you have any other ideas? I noticed it was made in Front Page, so I thought you might know.

Obviously I don't know...I viewed it in Netscape just fine..

thanks for any insight,

A common mistake sometimes is that the image path points to a local folder on the designer's PC, not on the webserver. Thus the designer sees everything fine even after publishing to the web...but everyone else gets blank images. I'd look into that.
