    When trying to access sites requiring Java I receive the message "Sorry, but you are not running a Java Compatible Web browser". I am using IE6 on a WinXP SP1 platform. Can anyone tell me how to enable Java in it? Is it something I have to add myself?

    Thanks, thats where I thought the option should be. I just installed WinXP and IE 6, didn't realize that microsoft has given up there license with SUN and has thus stoped including "microsoft virtual machine" with new instalations (what a twisted mess of database articles I had to weave through to find this out). I didn't even have JAVA on my comp. So all I had to do was go to SUN's site and d/l it .... problem solved
