Modal dialogs

I have created a large modal dialog from a JApplet. From this dialog, I want to pop-up another modal dialog to ask the user a question for filling in some data. However, when I pop-up the second dialog it does not respond to ANY user input except closing it from the X button.
Summary: I have a modal dialog displayed from a modal dialog. The second dialog allows no user input.
Is there a way around this?

Could you post some of your code for us to look at? That would help us to better examine your problem.
