Dear Raoul,

I have a feeling that your copy of gifaceserver is very old (the files on
the Sanger FTP site date from 1998).  I would therefore suggest you try
installing AceBrowser on top of a more up-to-date version of gifaceserver
(see http://www.acedb.org/Software/Downloads/supported.shtml).  Do you
know what version of gifaceserver you are running?

I notice from looking at your site that you get an 'Internal server error'
when trying to view a sequence graphically.  Maybe there is some more
useful information in the web server error log file?
