i really wonder why "Rob" didn't yet jump in if none else did so far into this?? may b Rob is busy...anyways...
do u try to access local gif? meaning something like c:\yourfolder\images\image.gif? (on Windows) OR /usr/home/yourlogin/images/image.gif (On Unix)??
if so then i would suggest that u can try using policy file settings to allow read access to the image file you have.
Following link might be helpful about PolicyTool,
PolicyTool Help
This policy file (java.policy OR .java.policy as you would read in the above mentioned link) will be there in your local machine as the applet is being executed on your machine (though within the browser JVM)...
i don't know if setting policyfile would work with IE but if you are using NN6/7 then you can have this policy file settings then go to the browser's Java Console use "Reload policy settings" option (for which "r" is the command in JavaConsole) and see if the applet works for you??
hope i could be of any help...
