I want to grant extra permissons to my applet in IE7/8. What should I do? Can I directly edit the policy files in the jre directory?

While it is possible to give an applet extra permissions by altering the local security policy, it is generally better to sign the applet if other people need to use it as well - doing so is out of the comfort (or even knowledge) zone of many people.

The HowCanAnAppletReadFilesOnTheLocalFileSystem page has more details on both approaches.
