Can anyone tell me where I'm supposed to get this file from? My code won't compile because the compiler says it can't find the classes from the import statements, and all the instructions say to make sure your path points to classes.zip. I don't have this file anywhere, and can't find a copy of it. What do I do?

classes.zip contains the normal classes for jdk 1.1, you can get a copy to install from JAVATM DEVELOPMENT KIT Version 1.1.x. However, I recommend you get Java2 either JDK1.2.2 or jdk1.3
If you get jdk1.1, you'll need to put classes.zip in your classpath and set your path A good explanation of this is Here
Hope this helps:

I have downloaded JDK 1.2.2 and installed it (quite a while ago, actually) and it never came with that file. Do you think its a bug? Should I uninstall it and try again?

No, with jdk 1.2.2 the standard classes are maintained in one of two files dt.jar(for development time) and rt.jar(for runtime) These are automatically loaded for you if you left them in the directories that they were placed in during installation. Any documentation that you se with classes.zip is for jdk1.1. You can still run any examples, most without any changes, Just ignore any reference to classes.zip.
Hope this helps
