<META content="0" http-equiv="expires"/>
<META content="nocache" http-equiv="pragma"/>

Place above lines into html/head.

Actually, the best thing that works in IE is to have the following:
<%
response.addHeader("Pragma" , "No-cache") ;
response.addHeader("Cache-Control, "no-cache") ;
response.addDateHeader("Expires", 0);  
%>

BOTH in the head of the of page and bottom of the page (I read this in a message board and it seems
to work for me) so the final version would be as such:

<html>
<head>
<%
response.addHeader("Pragma" , "No-cache") ;
response.addHeader("Cache-Control, "no-cache") ;
response.addDateHeader("Expires", 0);  
%>
</head>
<body>

....

</body>
<%
response.addHeader("Pragma" , "No-cache") ;
response.addHeader("Cache-Control, "no-cache") ;
response.addDateHeader("Expires", 0);  
%>
</html>

This works in NS and IE.

HTH,
CJ
