when I start the applet, then it downloads
binary which I guess is a native library(Java Native Interface) for
Linux operating system:

# file /root/IBM/
/root/IBM/ ELF 32-bit LSB shared
object, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, not
# strings /root/IBM/  | grep

I also guess that this is provided by IBM and it's probably broken?
Under Windows operating system it seems to download a dll file
according to Java Console:

ClientInterface::downloadLib: downloaded C:\Documents and
Settings\user\IBM\\remotedrive3d.dll in 1 attempts.

So I guess either the is broken or my Linux
version is not compatible with this native library..?
