Reading local files

I need to read a text file in an applet, but every time I do, Netscape starts throwing security exceptions. Is there some way around this? Am I not reading the file properly?
Thanks in advance,
Brian.

Unsigned applets are forbidden to access local files. Otherwise I could write an applet that would send me information off your computer you'd rather keep private.
