See if this works for you:

Bitmap myImage = new Bitmap(@"\Program Files\test.bmp")

As for responsive support sites, I've had moderate success with the MSDN 
newsgroups.  It's not as good as the palm-dev-forum, but that's probably asking 
a lot.  I too am curious to know if anyone has found something better.

By the way (off topic) when I first mentioned looking into SuperWaba, the nice 
Java VM for Palms and PPCs, I mentioned a shortcoming is that the English 
language support community seemed weak.  I was completely wrong about this.  
They have a great newsgroup at news.superwaba.net.  Bringing this back to your 
question, I wonder: have you checked USENET for active support forums?  I've 
not been a big USENET user in the past (except through Google's interface, 
which is slow to mirror and only good for searching archives) but I'm beginning 
to see the light.
