I've downloaded and am going to try Jigsaw 2.0.1 released on Jan 18th
1999.  Unfortunately some aspects of use will not work as I expect. 
Would you tell me what is wrong?  My configuration of computers are:

1. Toshiba Dynabook Satellite Pro (a notebook computer), which has Jdk
1.2 and Jsdk 2.0 as well as Jigsaw 2.0.1 installed.  The operating
system is Windows 95 (Japanese edition).  The Web browser is Netscape
Navigator 4.0.  The CLASSPATH setting is as follows:


2. Macintosh LC520 as a sheer client of the Jigsaw server.  The
operating system is System 7.5.3 (Japanese edition).  The Web browser is
Netscape Navigator 3.0.  In most cases, the notebook computer described
above plays a role of a client, too.

In this environment, I can successfully invoke the location of
'http://<IP address>:8001/' from both computers.  The 'Jigsaw Overview'
texts are correctly displayed.

The problems are:

(1) I want to try example servlets you can find in the 'example' folder
of Jsdk 2.0, but I can't do that at all.

According to WWW/Doc/User/servlets.html,  so-called automatic
installation must be effective.  Since my zip tool didn't prepare the
'servlets' folder, I created manually by Explorer.  After that I dropped
some servlet class files into the 'servlets' folder from the Jsdk
package.  I tried to activate a servlet from the Web browser specifying
the location of 'http://<server IP address>:8001/servlets/<class name>. 
To the contrary of my expectation, only a kind of directory hierarchy of
the 'servlets' folder will be displayed.  Even if I click the class name
shown on the window, the servlet doesn't seem to run anyway. (On the
Macintosh client, even the class name won't be shown.  Only 'Parent'
will be presented.)

I decided to install servlets manually.  However, I can't smoothly
navigate the instructions described under 'Manual installation' of the
document.  There are confusing discrepancies between the pictures in the
document and the images actually shown on operation.  To make the matter
worse, I can't create any entities under the 'servlets' directory
whatever.  In other words, I can't trace the activities described from
#4 through #8 of the Example.  Note that at that time the 'servlets'
directory already contains a class file, which is shown explicitly by

(2) When I try to get in touch with 'http://<server IP address>:8009'
from my Macintosh client, the message 'Method GET not implemented' will
be displayed and JigAdmin won't start.  On the server notebook, the same
situation will occur.  Is there any other way to invoke JigAdmin other
than executing org.w3c.jigadm.Main explicitly from MS-DOS prompt at the
server?  Note that when I executed org.w3c.jigsaw.Main, the message is
normally displayed as 'JigAdmin[2.0.1]: servng at http://<server IP
