It will just be the paths to the images that are wrong.

Just have a look at the code in a text editor or Dreamweaver's code view.

If your images are in a folder called images then the image code should look like this

<img src="images/yourFile.jpg" alt="" width="TBA" height="TBA" />

If the images are just in the same folder as the index.html then the code should look this

<img src="yourFile.jpg" alt="" width="TBA" height="TBA" />

My guess is that the link will be something on someones hard drive such as

img src="mydocuments/pictures/image.jpg"

well it should, you sent the entire folder , did you send as a zip file and diid your boss extract all the files?
if yes can you post an example of your code for the image source
