I don't have any other advice other than to follow the advice in the SLD 
document (http://www.mapserver.org/ogc/sld.html#client-side-support). 
It sounds like you have a local SLD file, so you should read the 
instructions there for using the "wms_sld_body" metadata parameter in 
your WMS Client layer (I believe the contents of that metadata is not a 
path, but all of the text in the sld document...in any case it is 
described more in the SLD document for your reference).
