jausoft gl4java installation faulty

I cannot seem to get gl4java to work under windows 98. I have installed both java 2, (version 1.3.1_01) and gl4java (2.8.2) a few times. The compiler work correctly, after I install to both the jdk path, and the runtime path. When i open the webpage I have my applet written in, all i get is a blank window. I doublechecked my opengl, then checked demos on other websites to confirm it wasn’t a problem with my code. If anyone has experience with gl4java in windows, I would appreciate your advice.
