I have two classes:
File 1:
package MyPackage;
class Balance{
String name;
int bal;
Balance(String n, int b){
name = n;
bal = b;
void show(){
System.out.println("--> " + name + " " + bal);
File 2:
package MyPackage;
class AccountBalance{
public static void main(String args[]){
Balance current= new Balance("Me", 0);

These seperate files both include the package statements, and are both physically located inside the MyPackage directory. The directory structure is:
I have fooled around with various import statements, tried moving to the above directory, mumbulled incantions to several fire-gods, but I can't get these to compile. What should I do!?!?

First of all, fire gods are for run time errors, not compile errors. Secondly, mortals need to know the error message you are getting.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
