CLASSPATH configuration

I have an applet running on a Web server on the Sun,
and a browser running on a Windows NT PC.  

I want the Applet to find all the appropriate classes on the
server.  I know how to set a CLASSPATH on the client, but
I don't want the browser to look on the client.  I only want
to store the classes on the server.  

The Netscape browser will look in the html directory on the server.  However, I need to specify a path of different directories to search for classes.  Is there any way to set up a CLASSPATH on the SERVER that will be used?
If not, how do I get the Applet to look in the appropriate
places for classes?

There is no such way, because browser that download and interprets your classes look only in his classes. You cannot specify CLASSPATH for the server, because server treads java apllet classes files just like image or other.
So SOLUTION:
1.put all classes in same directory. Browser looks also for classes in that directory, from which main class came.

2. There is option which can you specify in <applet> tag.
Normal definition is <applet code="Test.class" WIDTH=300 HEIGHT=300></applet>
you can also use codebase ="javaclasses"  , which means that will  classes are stored in directory javaclasses.
so if dir hiearchy is
home-  (here are html documents)
     |
      -javaclasses (here are all java classes)

then he will also look in this dir else JVM wil throw ClassNotFoundException.
Hoep this helps

Clasess must be copied to same directory. As I said. Server doesn't know what kind of files it handels. It him same whether gif or class. He sends what browser wants. This depends on HTM protocol.  Httpd server just send, waht browser asks. You cannot specify where is the CLASSPATH to the web server :(
