*swears lots*

*kicks the dog*

Ok, I'm gonna start over. I did exactly what you said, but when I typed in the ln -s command line, absolutely nothing happened. Then I tried a java screen, and nothing. Still the little puzzle piece.

brb.

HAr har. This is fun. Not for you tho, huh? lol. Trying to teach the newbiest of newbies via a keyboard. While I appreciate all you're doing to help me, I can't help but feel a little guilty and a lot sorry.

Anyways, a little closer now. Here's the cut n paste:

bash: ln-s: command not found
[root@localhost robb]#

All went well until that last ln -s command, whch was a direct cut and paste from your last post. Btw, I'm using Mozilla 1.2.1 - I checked.

No biggie. Your instructions were perfect, and very easy to follow. But it didn't work. I finished all the way to control + D twice, and still no JAVA. I guess it's just not meant to be.

The last try presented no errors, even when I added the space between the "ln -"...

I just don't know.

*cries*

(ok, not really, but close. lol)

Lol... I suppose THAT makes Java look too easy, huh? lol.

I wonder why it wouldn't work? That's so weird. Everything worked exactly like you transcribed, but nada. That's so odd.

Maybe it's a sign: STAY WITH GATES! lol.

I'd rather have a sister who works in a whorehouse than a friend who runs XP. lol!
