make a simlink from /[javadirectory]/plugin/i386/mozilla/javaplugin_oji.so to /[mozilladirectory]/plugins

The javaplugin file may not end in oji, but something else, I cant remember which Sun Java uses and which Blackdown uses.

I made a symlink to libjavaplugin_oji.so that was in the ns610 directory and it worked for me so give that a try.

Sorry, I must have been using Blackdowns Java. But yeah, the /600 or /610 should work fine (I use the /600 in Mozilla Firebird, and it works well).
