One thing I've always done differently with these icons is use a standard naming convention:
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.gif"/>
Something about favicon.gif has always worked better for me...
Also, IE has some general weirdness (shocking, I know!) with favorite icons...you have to actually put the site in your favorites!
Just for kicks, try adding your site to your IE favorites, then close/reload IE and see what happens. I seem to recall this making the site's favorite icon *magically* appear.

Thanks for the advice, I did exactly what you suggested but to no avail. Im not going to worry too much about it -- just thought it would be a nice added feature which I'll keep but to heck with PC users!
