Icon Error

I am having difficulty producing a suitable icon for my Windows standalone
applications.  I am currently using "Icon Snatcher" and "Icon Grabber"
utilities to convert my PhotoShop bmp files to .ico files.  When I go to
make my Standalone app from Revs "Build Distribution" stack, I get the
following error:

"Windows Application icon file is wrong size (must be 744 bytes).  Make sure
you have created a 16 color icon and try again"

I limited my icon color palette to 16 colors and tried some variations but I
just can't get it!

Any recommendations on method for creating icons or a great utility for
converting my graphics to icons?  I am more of a Mac user so this topic
really baffles me (Mac Icons are easy to deal with).  I do have a Windows
machine available for the conversion/creation of icons.  Any and all
recommendations are welcome.
