In order to read from the client machine, there are two things that you can do:
1. Sign the applet. If you need info about this I'll add some comments.
2. In IE4 you can define your server as a "trusted zone" and remove compleatly the security restrictions on the applets coming from that site

I was to choose option number two and remove the security restrictions would this mean I could open a file from my C drive if so...How do I go about it???

To do that  perform the following:  use view -> internet options -> security tab -> trusted site zone -> add sites -> (write the servers address) -> Add -> OK -> set Custom security level -> Settings... -> scroll to Java permissions ->   Check the "Custom" Checkbox -> Click the "Java Custom Settings..." -> Select the "Edit Permission" tab. -> Under "Run Unsigned Content" Check the "Enable" Checkbox -> Click "OK" -> Click "OK" -> Click Apply -> Click "OK".
