Default Applet file access

Hi everybody,

I am making an applet which will be written on to a compact disk.
My problem is that how could that applet access a file present in the same folder in that disk. I have some basic idea about the java.policy file that I have to create in the client side.

Please let me know if there is some other way, because I would be distributing that CD to many people and hence not feasible for me to create that file in every client's end (or is it possible? with the help of some batch file???). I want my applet to access only a perticular file in the CD which resides on the same folder as that of the applet.

Right now I am getting a security exception - file access denied.

Thanks a lot,
