with the getImage() method, it needs a URL and a string name for the agruements.  what do i put for the URL if it is a local file, but not in the same directory as the applet itself.  therefore i can't use the "getDocumentBase()" or "getCodeBase()".  so what's the answer?

Do something like this

Image img = getToolkit().getImage("test\\About.jpg");
g.drawImage(img, 0, 0, 615, 430, this);

this might work, i kept getting a nullpointer exception which doesn't make sense to me, because there was nothing mispelled, and all the files were where i specified them to be.  i'm not sure what the "test" in your answer is, is that the path?

Yes that is quite obvious . You have to escape the path ... I did not know you could not figure it out or I would give more explanation.
