1. what is FCE? see above
is it the RTE/RTEhtmlarea?

2. if you got the icon "Image not found" then there is a valid img-tag, but
no valid img-source, that may be the wrong path.
use your browser and look at the HTML-source-code you get calling the page.
Then you may extract the path and image-name given in the img-tag and try
it alone. 
And don't forget: only with windows /images/plaatje.jpg is the same than
On UNIX/Linux (most web-servers use this OS) these are different
directories and different files!
