It appears that the java compiler can't find the Java3D classes.  This
is consistent with a missing or improper Java3D installation.  The
Java3D package is separate from JDK1.2beta4 and must be installed
separately (though on a Sparc system it does unpack into a
previously-existing JDK1.2 installation).  For information on how to
install Java3D, see the following URL:

Note: If you're not registered as a Java developer, you'll have to in
order to obtain the Java3D package.  It's a very small deal.  Consider it
the price to pay for cutting-edge software.
