Default conn strings on a lan (easy)

I have an Microsoft JET Database engine error no '80004005' because it cannot find my database. The asp Ive written resides in the same place as the database as Im on a LAN and this is the default home for IIS. I guess?
Thing is, its loking for the database on my C Drive and its not there, it is in My Network places and a few folders down. Im on a LAN.
Could anyone plaese help. I tried to use Server. MapPath but that still doesnt work. Im specifying the Conn.Provider and then trying to use Conn.Open for the opening of the database.


Thanks In Advance
