Problem while using JdbcOdbc bridge driver with applets in IE 5

I am using the JdbcOdbcBridge driver. The user interface is an applet in which the user enters some info and the required information is retrieved from the database. This is working fine while using Netscape and Hot Java browsers but when I use IE(5), I get an error saying that
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver
at com/ms/vm/loader/URLClassLoader.loadClass (URLClassLoader.java)
at java/lang/ClassLoader.loadClassInternal (ClassLoader.java)
at java/lang/Class.forName (Class.java)
at Client1.init (Client1.java:52)
I am using jdk 1.3 .

Why am I getting this error ? Is it a problem with IE or the driver ?
Anyone who has an answer to this question, please respond asap .

Check your classpath. It is telling you that it can't find the JdbcOdbcDriver class.
