We have studied the magnetoresistance (MR) and evolution of conductivity with thickness of quench-condensed bismuth films on substrates of various dielectric constants. Our results indicate a negative initial MR proportional to the square of the magnetic field. The conductance shows a power law kind of dependence on thickness, with an exponent close to 1.33, characteristic of a 2-D percolating system, only when the films are grown on a thin $(\sim 10 \AA)$ germanium underlayer but not otherwise.
