I am trying to see if anyone has or how to create a hovering textlabel, such as when you leave your mouse over the start button in Windows 95 and the little message pops up saying "Click here to begin".  I want to create these for some buttons I have on my application.  How do I do this?

Tooltips are now part of JDK 1.2. It used to be part of Swing. You can download either from Javasoft by subscribing (for free) to the Java Developer Connection (http://www.javasoft.com). Enough examples are provided to get you started.
