Changing the Heap Size in the Java Plugin (Control Panel)

How do you change the Heap Size on a client PC for applets being viewed in a browser? There's a java plugin console that sits in the control panel. Is that where changes would be made? If I wanted my heap size to take up a minimum of 64mb of the client RAM, what would the setting be?

Well if the client only HAS 32 meg of RAM that would be a problem wouldn't it?
Sorry -
Actually an applet only gets as much room as the browser that it is running in allows it. so you have 2 layers of problems, knowing which browser that you are running in and how to manipulate each one, and knowing what operating system that the browser is running on.
I think that you are going to have to try talking to that browser somehow.
