Thanks all, for the replies!

1)	No, the JigKill "timeout" is sometimes forever.  I've given it a few
minutes sometimes and it's just in a loop.  However, I have not had this
problem in the last day, so I'm not complaining.

2)	The server is now hunting to index.html.  I think I wasn't reindexing
the resources properly, because I noticed that after adding a new
resource after making the global default change, that it worked on that
directory only.  So I reindexed the older resource and it suddenly
worked like a charm.  (I may be wrong - if so, it was a happy

3)	As far as GIFs hanging up the browser, I changed the GIF extension's
quality to 1.0 (instead of 0.9 which seemed to be the default) and that
problem also cleared up.  (This may also be a coincidence.)

4)	I installed the IBM JDK at some of your recommendations, and it
seemed faster.  Then I saw that Sun just released JDK 1.2.2, and the
benchmarks claimed with HotSpot the new JDK was quicker than the IBM
1.1.7 JDK, so I downloaded that (what a busy downloading day on a 56k
modem, eh?) and lo and behold it's actually faster.  So now I'm quite
pleased - now I wish I could get rid of these Java DOS boxes and replace
them with cutesy little systray icons.  :o]

Thanks again!  Now it's time for some dev.
