Default Include Files pointing to corrrect path

I have a menu include file that I am putting on every ASP page in my site. This include contains links to images that are in my images folder at c:mysite\images. I reference the images I using the file path <img src="..\images\test.jpg">. This does not work however as users go deeper within the folders in the site. How can I make it so that I am pointing to the correct folder on every page? If have a virtual directory set up in IIS for the Mysite folder can I use this sytnax:
<img src="\mysite\images\test.jpg">?

Please help?

If you use a virtual directory you can address the folders releative to the root of the virtual directory as
<img src="/mysite/images/test.jpg">
Please note the use of the forward slashes.
