how about you actually expand on, and backup, these statements... have you created the symlink to your browsers plugin directory?

Just out of interest - you posted a lot of information but I can't see what makes you think it is installed twice. Am I missing something?

What's this "ls -l" all about? Use "rpm -q j2sdk" to find out what java rpms are installed. For mozilla, you need a symlink to libjavaplugin_oji.so in the plugins directory.

Eureka !
 
I had transcribed the incorrect number in the symbolic link.

Thanks Dean! I sincerely appreciate your taking the time to assist.
