Template image display problem(newbie)


Hi guys,
I use a web template for my rails application.
I place the images in public/image folder.
I edit my list.rhtml(got by scaffolding)
Now my image display code is as below:

But when i access the page from the IE then no image is displayed.
I have googled and found <% image_tag(WORK2R-2_04.gif) %> but no result.

Please make me clear about display image in rails page.
