Play on the Yahoo?? Is that like playing on the guitar? Or maybe playing on the grass......
As you can see, we need a bit more detail before we can be helpful.

It would help to know what distro you are using. There might be an *easier* option (i.e. apt-get). Other than that you would download it directly from sun.

Just follow their instructions. After it installs, you may have to add a symbolic link in the plugin directory of your browser to point to the plug-in itself. I believe thats also explained on the above page.

EDIT: My apologies. The above link is where you download it from. Here is a link to explain about the symbolic link:

do you have java installed? if so try

cd to your Mozilla Firefox plugins directory
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0_06/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so ./libjavaplugin_oji.so

use tab to make sure you are using the correct directories/files though
