Iconographer will do it... works like a charm for me. I think it's shareware... besides that, I can't think of any Mac software that does .ico files. I suppose Graphic Converter might, though.

Yes, GraphicConverter can save to *.ico
Not much of a surprise, really; it does everything :)

It does everything until you're handed 30 pages of MS Word files with a bunch of .mix format graphics to deal with...
Story of the last week of my life. Even Graphic Converter couldn't save me.
But if you have GC, all you need to do is create a 16px X 16px image, save it in the Windows system palette, and save as "favicon.ico". Then upload the file to the root directory for the website in question... (same directory as index.htm is).
Should work. :)

my only problem is that namezero.com (the company i registered my domain) has url forwarding and somehow the favicon doesn't work when it goes thorugh them.
basically if you click here: [iraszl.brinkster.net...] it works perfectly, but the same page through [raszl.net...] it won't work.

favicons only work automatically when the Explorer can request the favicon.ico file when it is first sent to a page...
However, if you add a <link rel> tag to your page headers, you should be able to redirect that browser request to a specific file location...
Click the "site search" link at the top of the page here, and search for link rel favicon and I'm almost certain you will find the code to make you happy. :)
(...if not, I can try to hunt down the info for you... :))
