Can you describe the problems?  Were they compile problems
or runtime Exceptions?  Did you try running from the visad.jar
that contains precompiled classes?  Your problem may only
be a CLASSPATH problem or something simple like that.

Where did you get your Java?  Looking on www.apple.com I
found a JDK 1.1.8 but not a JDK 1.2 - VisAD requires JDK 1.2,
also known as Java 2.

Cheers,
Bill
