Helix Gnome is now Ximian Gnome, and the latest version is Gnome 1.2.

The "applets" that come with Gnome aren't java applets. They are "panel
applets", ie. small programs that run in the Gnome Panel. They don't
need java.

Hmm. When I run any applet directly from the command line, they
automatically open up in my Gnome Panel. Another way to run an applet is
to right-click on the Gnome Panel and add the applet through the menu
(or just use the regular Gnome menu).

Do you have a panel running?
