I have an applet that needs to access the local hard drive. It is possible to get the users to download a plug-in BUT is it possible to get a type of certificate allowing users to access the applet without downloading a plug-in ?? Please help, I am totally stuck right now !!!

In that case, you will have to write different codes for both Internet Explorer and NetScape.
