Internet explorer is looking for an favicon.ico or a custom icon file that
customizes your bookmark entry into a users book mark list.  If you get an
icon editor and make a custom icon 16x16, I think, icon then you can put it
in your home directory and when someone bookmarks the site they will see
your cute little icon in their bookmarks.
Now that you have done this, you have to put it in every directory
accessible to IE to prevent excessive logging of errors on your server.
