between the tube and the tire.
If you are having trouble w/ spoke heads popping tires from the inside the guy at the bike shop tells me
1) make sure spokes are good and tight. My first, sloppy build tended to pull the wheel to one side tightening spokes on the pedal side and loosening the ones on the left side.
2) a few layers of duct tape between the rim and the inner tube.

As far as the nylon liners go they were $15 for a stupid sheet of nylon 2" x 70 or 80" but they do seem to work. note, they do not protect against punctures on the sides of the tiers.
