Image Path display issue

Working with Power CMS 2.02 here...

When I upload an image (or "Browse Server" and select one that has already been uploaded), the image displays just fine in the editor, but then doesn't display on the actual website (I just get a broken image placeholder where the image should be displaying).

FYI: I'm experiencing the exact same issue, and the exact same pathing problem with any documents/files I upload during the Insert/Edit Link process.

The PowerCMS installation is located at "edit.mydomain.com". (which is a subdomain located at "/htdocs/mydomain/cms/")

The public website is located at: "www.mydomain.com". (which is another subdomain located at "/htdocs/mydomain/www/")

When I upload an image and link to it, the editor sees it at: "edit.mydomain.com/images/imagename.jpg" (and it displays fine in the CMS)

Over on the public site, where that content area is displayed, the image path is:
"imagename.jpg" (so it's not displaying)

How do I fix the path that is created when I insert an image in the editor so that I can see the image in both places?

I makes absolutely no sense to me why this doesn't work.

What do I have to do to get PowerCMS 2.02 to work with image and file paths across these two subdomains?
