Unfortunately file management is one of the big weaknesses in Drupal 6,
and I've never
found a solution that I really liked. There are a lot of efforts toward
improving that in D7
(the Media project, and assorted core file handling improvements) but
for now there are
John's suggestion is one of the reasonable methods, and IMCE plus
TinyMCE is the common
way to manage embedded images.
