On my sites statistics it includes:
Hits by response code
Code 200-Ok 1435
Code 206-Partial content 3
Code 301-Moved permanently 3
Code 302-Found 3
Code 304-Not modified 168
Code 404-Not found 52
I'm thinking "Ok" is good, but "not found" sounds like a broken link, but I can't find a broken link?
This is the site (http://www.aride4you.com)

I guess it could come down to someone's ISP on the blink for a second, and making the users refresh to get the rest of the page... either that or you have a spacer image or something daft that you've forgotten to upload

Could it not also be as a result of someone trying to navigate to a nonexistent page, like by typing "www.yoursite.com/secretAdminArea.asp" in their browser?

that can be a cause, but on a hand-coded page (wysiwig editors usually maintain the links themselves) a unobtrusive typo in a link href can result in pages not found as well.
don't your statistics specifically list which page requests resulted in 404's?
As said, snoopy people or bots. Don you have a robots.txt? Do you have a favicon.ico? Maybe 52 people using IE bookmarked your page and you don't have a favicon! :D

Aye, that could explain it. Using Konqueror, it looks for the favicon on every site/page you open with it, whether it's bookmarked or not.
Konq too? I thought it only was stupid IE. :p

I don't know what "robots.txt" or "favicon.ico" are? So I'm thinking I don't have them!
Is there a thread in this forum that covers those?
My site is on jumpline.com, don't see any stats that tell me which page requests result in 404's, but the favicon.ico issue above probably is my solution.

robot.txt is a txt file which a search engine 'bot will look for. You don't really need it though,
