Yes - I understand completely and that is appreciated.
I don't have any problem getting the editor to work locally or remotely. I just cant get the image paths I want for portability.
I've been through the config files and even installed the new version of CKEditor and the latest version of KFM to find a common factor. From what I can see both FCK and CK and KFM all use the same code to pick up the site root. That makes the issue impossible to work around - unless you guys know better.
If its worth a talk after that :-)
I'm in for the next hr - will update my ticket with phone number
