Where to store pictures?

Your post

I am using FileMaker Server 8 and FMP 8. I have a database file of products that is shared and resides on a windows xp pro machine that is our dedicated FileMaker server. I would like to add pictures to this database. More specifically just file references to the pictures as I don't want the database to get huge and I understand this is the recommend procedure.

 

Where the best place to store those pictures? I would like to create a shared folder where my users can upload pictures to. Is it better to create this shared picture folder on a separate file server or should I create a shared folder on the machine that is hosting FileMaker Server?

 

Thanks!
