[Newbies] inserting images with Seaside

Thanks for your help. But I'm still confused about the directory tree being
used. My files are in this hierarchy:
- MySqueak (dir)
    - Squeak3.8-TJK.image
    - Resources (dir)
        - Cybele-photo01.jpg

What I understand your message to mean is that the documentRoot object
contains static files that I can render without additional path information.
So an image in Resources should render just by giving its filename. So I
html image: 'Cybele-photo01.jpg' altText: 'Cybele photo'.
This gives
Error: "/seaside/Cybele-photo01.jpg" not found.

Since that didn't render the image, I tried:
html image: 'Resources/Cybele-photo01.jpg' altText: 'Cybele photo'.
But also gives the not found error.
Error: "/seaside/Resources/Cybele-photo01.jpg" not found.

So at this point I'm stumped. I'm sure it's a trivial config issue. I'll
keep working through the tutorial.

Thanks again.
