      Description

      I figured out the problem; appletviewer works fine on win95 if the
      display is set for 256 colors. When I set the display for 16bit
      color I get the exception thrown I noted below. Note that netscape/java works
      fine in 16bit mode.

      It's an IBM Thinkpad 760CD; the adapter as listed in the
      display properties is: IBM ThinkPad(Cyber9320)


      thanks,
