I feel so stupid asking this. But how do I find or set up a site root. Every thing that I do, I get the message thar the file images is outside the site.

See screenshots. 

 

In this first example, my local site root is C:\myTestSite.

Files Panel (F8), Local site rootFiles Panel (F8), Local site root

 

Second example shows the remote server's root.Manage Sites > Remote serverManage Sites > Remote server

 

Post back if you still have questions.

Basically when you follow that link to define a site in Dreamweaver you are defining your site.  This site will then be uploaded to your remote server and viewed on the web.  If an image exists outside of your site on your computer (ie: my photos vs. my documents) you would essentially be setting up an instance where your images are living on a separate server from your website which is not the desired result.  This is why Dreamweaver is prompting the message it is to let you know that you should move all assets (html, images, scripts, etc.) into your site folder.
