favicon.ico and long pathnames

Hi
If I have a website with a url like
http://localhost/MyWebPage/SomeDirectory/startPage.aspx

Can I still use a favicon.ico file? For the entire Site? How?
Its hard to experiment with favicon files as they seem to be quite hit and
miss as to whether or not they appear

You can certainly use a favicon file. For instructions on using it in a web
site, see http://www.favicon.com/.

sorry, can't find the answer on there
If I have a website with a url like
http://localhost/MyWebPage/SomeDirectory/startPage.aspx


So the question is, given a url that starts not with www.mypage.com but
with local/MyWebPage and using IIS can I do it then.

NB, I know I can add it to the individual page but from that page can I then
access the root of the web site, e.g. something like:

~/MyWebPage/pictures/favicon.ico

My problem being that I use a template for each page so rather than adding
the link on every single page which would be tedious I want to add
it to a generic page thats included on other pages which could be anywhere
in the relative directory structure.
