You need to upload your png file to an image hosting site. Once you do that, you'll be able to get a URL from the site to put in. (Basically, the forum can't use the avatar when it's on your computer; it has to be on the internet first.) I use Imageshack to host my avatars and other images, and I know Photobucket is popular as well. There are other sites, too, but I believe those two are the most popular.

There's also expanded advice, stickied at the top of the Board Issues subforum, which will have the answer to this and any other avatar-related problems you have.
