The easiest way ... is to go to java.com ... download the Java Runtime
Environment. (Get the .bin not the rpm). Extract the bin file then copy
the directory you get to where evere ( i use /usr/bin/) The go into 
the java directory and cd into plugins/i386/ns6-gcc3.2/ then you will
see the plugin ... Symlink this plugin to ~/.mozilla/plugins or

good luck,
