Check out the sun tutorial on Java Security. One has to make the Applet a Trusted applet by using certificates, then on each client, you need to manually set the security policy to allow for this to happen.
It's a pain, but it can be done.... Like I said check out Sun's Security tutorial...
Applets, however are not designed for writing to a local computer.... If you do this, you are breaking the fundamental security concepts that Applets are contracted to keep.
