      Description

      Name: aaR10208 Date: 06/20/2003


      Filed By : J2SE-SQA [###@###.###
      JDK : JDK1.5.0-b09
      Platform[s] : Windows 2000 Pro
      switch/Mode : Plugin + NS7.0

      File.exists() and File.isDirectory() calls for "A:" drive can cause a dialog box
      "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive A:" to appear.
      File.listRoots() works fine in this build.

      Please, see bugid#4850616 for more details.

      3. Copy the following applet and html files on the local disk.
      4. Compile applet and open test.html. NOTE: Use desktop link to start Netscape.
