It may be that is is stored. Try one, then do a Find (from your Start 
menu) and see if it is there.

jpgs will load faster because they are compressed.

I think you need to tell Netscape how to handle the bmps. Netscape 
(depending on the version) uses "Helpers" to display some files. You 
will have to go to Preferences (or the PC equivalent) and find the .bmp 
file type  and tell Netscape what to do with it. As I remember it can be 
told to handle it "internally" but I am not sure. I just don't know 
enough about the PC version to be more specific.
