This error occurs when using Universal Naming Conventions (UNC) in an image catalog:
"Stop! Image Source *.dbf has error, unable to make theme."
ArcView does not support UNC for image catalogs.
You cannot use UNC in the path name for an image catalog but you can use environment variables. This is illustrated by the following example of an image catalog stored on a UNIX machine. The image catalog is mapped on a Windows machine.

Assume you have a Windows machine with the drive 'R' mapped to \the_box.
setenv THE_VARIABLE /the_box/path
