We have a site running on wss 3.0, in a cluster with a hardware load balancer. The site is NOT https. All clients are running IE6.

About 60% of the traffic is for a single gif /sites/xxxx/_themes/Lacquer/viewheadergrad_lacquer.gif

Anyone know what could cause this gif not to be cached in the browser?

Have you used WireShark, Fiddler or Firebug to analyze the request made by the browser and the response sent by the server?

This will indicate whether the problem is client side or server side.
