XML referencing files--absolute or relative

I have gone through the tutorial http://www.kirupa.com/developer/mx2004/xml_flash_photogallery.htm
and I have the slideshow.swf loaded into the main movie, start.fla.
The only problem is start.fla is in the parent directory. I can get the UI to come
up with no problem, but when I try to load the XML file, start.fla or slideshow.swf is looking in the parent and not the child directory.


In my start.fla I have this
loadMovieNum(“slideshow.swf”, 50);
Why am I having this problem, and how can I fix it?
