Problems in configuring Forms6.0 & OWAS 4.0

My machine is Windows nt 4.0 workstation.
Oracle 8.0.4.2.3 is in a remote machine so i have client for
8.0.4.2.3 installed on my machine.
I have installed OWAS 4.0 on my machine and also developer6.0
beta in my machine.

I have set up all the virtual directories for my listener.
Tested the OWS with Sample html files in my HTML virtual
directory and it is working fine..

I developed a sample application using dev6.0 connecting to
remote 8.0.4 db and generated the FMX.

Now i want to deploy the form on the web using Non Catridge
implementation.
So I modified the Static.HTML just added my virtual
directories,module names and logins and moved that html file to
my html virtual directory location
I start the Forms server listener from start menu .I checked it
using taskman it is running

Now when i start my html in the browser the applet starts and
nothing happens.I notice the browser shows a small square just
showing a portion of the runtime window

Can any one help me out in Figuring whether I am missing any
configuration step or just version /os incompatability

    I have encountered the same problem. It is because the Forms Java
    Applet now behaves differently with Forms 6.0. The small square
    you see is the applet running, as it used to with Forms 5.0.
    However, now the Forms application does not appear by default as
    a separate window - it uses the applet as a kind of MDI. The
    default size for the applet in static.html is 20x20, so you don't
    see much of the embedded form. Try changing the HEIGHT and WIDTH
    parameters on the APPLET tag within your copy of static.html to
    something like 800x600 - you should see your form pop up inside
    the applet. This behaviour is also displayed using the applet
    viewer.

    CHRIS! Thanks for the TIP!! That worked great! I was pulling
    my hair out trying to get my Forms 6.0 form to run over the
    browser... The documentation with EAP 6.0 isn't quite up-to-
    date, and I was trying to rely on my Forms 4.5 docs....
