An icon should be 16x16 pixels, and can be monochrome, 8-bit color, 16-bit color, or 
24-bit color.

The magic in the page:

<link rel=\"SHORTCUT ICON\" HREF=\"netbed.ico\">
<link rel=\"SHORTCUT ICON\" HREF=\"netbed.png\" TYPE=\"image/png\">

Some browsers only do .ico, some do .png also. The .ico looks screwy in my mozilla, so 
we're using the png.

Also, some browsers look for favicon.ico by default. So link that file to the .ico 

To make a png into an ico :

pngtopnm netbed.png | ppmtowinicon -output netbed.ico
