    u can't set a local address for the avatar. you have to set a web address. i.e. first get hold of a free web host(try bravenet.com) then upload ur pic and set the address. if ur website is xyz.bravehost.com(this is the free domain u get with bravenet)then the address of ur pic will be xyz.bravehost.com/mypic.jpg. Best of Luck !
    Cheers !

    u can use pictures which float about in the big wide web. so upload your picture to some photo sharing site like www.photobucket.com and then give the link for that photo for ur avatar. but make sure the avatar is'nt huge :)

    U can upload th pic which is on ur computer to some image-hosting service like www.imageshack.us. After the upload is complete, th service will give u th link to th image, which u can paste in the 'Link to off-site avatar' section in th profile editing page. P.S. PLEASE HOST AN AVATAR NOT A WALLPAPER :)
