 Paths are always relative to where the client thinks the directory is.
 CGI scripts aren't special.
 
 Please give an example of how exactly you are putting in this "complete
 url to another machine".  This really doesn't have anything to do with
 Apache, since Apache does nothing with the HTML you output and the client
 is the one that interprets relative filenames.
