image reloading and browser cache settings

    i have created a menu that uses a layer whose visibility is turned on
    or off depending on a button rollover. the layer contains a single
    image. if i set my IE6 cache settings to check for newer versions
    "every visit to the page" and set the disk cache to 1mb (as small as
    it will go) the image is reloaded from the server every time the
    visibility is switched on or the image is swapped with another while
    visible (it is a small image - only 500 bytes), which causes a slight
    delay that ruins the whole effect. i am already preloading all the
    images. it seems to work ok on netscape with the cache settings both
    at 0.
    is the minimum disk cache setting for IE misleading? if its really at
    1mb it should be able to hold a few 500byte images. why are they
    preloading every time?
    thanks,
    jeff
