Well that was a fun memory sidetrip. Now can someone answer my question.

If I use Cname on my existing server to point to my S-Drive website and want to create links to files in sub-folders, what is the naming convention used.

Currently to reference a file in a sub-folder that is on my S-Drive website, I have to use:
1) http://MYWEBSITE.coffeecup.com/site/SUB … afile.html

This is how it works now on my traditional server:
2) http://www.MYWEBSITE.COM/SUBFOLDER/afile.html

So, after I set up my website with Cname to forward to CoffeeCup's S-Drive, will my naming/linking convention be like example #1 or #2 for referencing-linking to files in sub-folders. This matters to me because I have like 80 links I may have to change.

Okay, granted I left the question mark off the original sentence, but is what I'm asking somehow unclear?

I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Eric-
So is #2 definitely how it works after I move my website to S-Drive and setup Cname to point from my traditional server to the new setup - then link to sub-folders? Man getting a straight answer here is like pulling teeth...:)
