if the packageA is in folder say "thecode"
and your making packageB in that folder,you got to import thecode.packageA.*;
ie. always go up one level if your in another package within abig package(folder)
hope i'm right

Make sure that your directory
C:\My Documents\Java
is in the classpath.
Then, when you say that SuperclassA is in package packageA, you have to make sure that it IS. You are promising the compiler that there is a subdirectory under the classpath with the given package name.
So SuperclassA.class needs to reside in
C:\My Documents\Java\packageA\SuperclassA.class
- unless of course you have it jarred up, in which case the jar file that contains that subdirectory needs to be in the classpath directory.
