BTW, I'm using etch.
When I install the later edition of Sun-Java6 with synaptic.
Then I go test it using konquorer browser at:
The test failed, no dancing little Java stickman!
During the test I see a small icon appear on lower right
corner of browser and I clicked on it and get this error message.

- Clearing your Web Browser Cache
I cleaned the cache, and tried again.

it says down on the left lower status bar:
applet "" started
and it shows in the window where the applet should be
I have uninstalled and re-install, and re-did all the above
so many times over a four day period. Stopped for Christmas

Thanks in advance for being able to post and all your help!
