Could you post the part of your code that is causing the problem?

It is not a 1.4.2 problem. (it works on W2K + 1.4.2)

This is my code
                  JButton go=new JButton(new ImageIcon(new URL(getCodeBase(),imageURLPath+"Go.gif")));
                  go.setCursor(new Cursor(Cursor.HAND_CURSOR));
                  go.addActionListener(new DisplayProcess());

If it is not an 1.4.2 problem, then where is the problem?

In cases like these I would comment out all statements that start "go." except for the tooltip.
If that won't work the problem is elsewhere.
Then re-enable the statements one by one ....
By the way: is an "example-from-the-book" working at all? It would qualify your machine,
O.S. and JAVA installation at once.
