This is news to us (but I rarely run on machines without
Java3D installed). Can you tell us a specific program from
the tutorial gives the error message:
> java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/media/j3d/Behavior
If its a program that doesn't construct any DisplayImplJ3D
then you may have found a bug in the recent visad.jar.
