Howdy!  First, thanks to W3C, etc. for developing this puppy.  I love
it.  Well, I love it as much as I can right now.  :o)

Running this on a 250mhz Win95 PC 48megs RAM, using Sun's JDK 1.2.1
java.exe, doing most testing through Netscape 4.6.  

Was developing an e-mail applet using JavaMail, realized that was a pain
in the ass, and have decided to launch further into Java dev by making
it into servlets - and then I found Jigsaw.  It all came together.

Having trouble, of course, being a novice web admin and jumping into an
OO web server.

If any of you can answer some of these, my migraines might clear up.

1)	About 60% of the time, stopping or saving the server from JigAdmin
hangs JigAdmin entirely.  Attemping to use JigKill after terminating the
hung JigAdmin also results in JigKill sitting there but not hanging,
waiting for a timeout that never comes, apparently.  I have to terminate
everything and start again.

2)	Even though I've changed browseable to false and the indexers'
/default/directories/*default*/http-frame/ index file to index.html, it
still does not hunt to the index.html, it just gives me a browseable
list of files.  Does this only affect the root?  And am I correct in
assuming you can change the index file per directory as well?  I've
tried changing that too, but to no avail.

3)	I am also having the same trouble others had (in list archives) with
image files timing out.  Docs get served up just fine, but images make
the browser (NN 4.6) wait for connections to close.  When I hit Stop on
the browser, some of the images appear and seem to be loaded, but others
not at all.  I tried switching KeepAlive off, but no change.  None of
the answers in the archive were very helpful, I'm afraid.

4)	Is there a faster way to run Java in Win95 besides the
/jdk1.2.1/bin/java.exe?

I would love to get this working so I could actually do some dev on this
machine, but I'm spending most of my time wandering around in JigAdmin
and the documentation trying to figure out what's going on.  :o]
