Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Navigate to your Java directory and look for a folder called plugin(Mine is /usr/lib/SunJava2**.*/jre/plugin/desktop/i386/ns10)
and make a link to thiis file from the pluginin directory of your browser.
There is a tutorial that I wrote on this web site that may be of interest to you, it includes instructions on how to install the java vm and also how to get it to work with Firefox, Mozilla, or LimeWire.
I installed jdk1.5.0 in /usr/local like the sun web site told me to do.
I rm the java, javac, and jar files from the /usr/bin and created links to the /usr/local/jdk1.5.0/bin for java after it did not work I also crated links for javac and jar.
I found the plugins folder for firefox in /usr/lib/firefox-1.0/plugins and created the link showed in the how to doc.
ln -s /usr/local/jdk1.5.0/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so
I just don't get it. it should work.
Would it be to much to ask for linux browsers to be more user friendly!
Here is a recap for any one else that has been following this and hoping to get java to work.
The How to document is a good document The problem I was having is I already had install jdk1.5.0 before I read it and did not do a RPM install but did a .bin install
so the paths was a little different.
What I did to get java to work is:
I downloaded jdk1.5.0 from sun's web site the one I got was the .bin
I cd to /usr/local as root and ran the downloaded file while in that directory so it would install there. After it was finished installing I went to /usr/bin and deleted java, javac and jar just like in the how to. I then made a symbolic link for java from /usr/bin to /usr/local/bin while in the /usr/bin directory the command is
# ln -s /usr/local/jdk1.5.0/bin/java java
after that I had to make one more link I cd to /usr/lib/foxfire-1.0/plugins
and made the link below
