Anyone get an app to install OTA from a Comcast hosted web page?

I've read through all the information I can find here and elsewhere, know why the .jad just opens instead of installing (lack of correct MIME types configured on the web server), but can't find any information on how to fix this problem on Comcast web hosting.  Comcast was no help, refused to comment.  Has anyone ever gotten an app to install OTA from a Comcast-hosted web page?  All the threads I've seen so far ask, "what kind of server do you have", but Comcast will not tell me, not even whether they support configuration of MIME types or not, nor if they offer any higher web hosting package that does.  So I'd just like to know if anyone has gotten this to work from a Comcast server.


The MIME types are

  cod     application/vnd.rim.cod
  jad     text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor
  jar     application/java-archive


I currently have, in the root and file directories on the web server, these config files:




   AddType text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor jad
   AddType application/java-archive jar
   AddType application/vnd.rim.cod cod




   <remove fileExtension=".cod" />
        <mimeMap fileExtension=".jad" mimeType="text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descrip" />
        <mimeMap fileExtension=".cod" mimeType="application/vnd.rim.cod" />


But still, all that happens is the .jad file comes up as text on the phone.
