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.

I am currently running Mandy 9 with Netscape 7.01 - I have couple of sites that when I visit them say they need the new Java 1.4.1 update- I have installed both jre2 and SDK. In JRE I created directory to install it under /usr/java
ON SDK I let it install to defualt.
Now for some reason I am unable to get it work in Netscape.
I think what the problem is that Netscape does not see the new plugin-
I don't know how make sure it sees it. I looked under prefernces but nothing there to help me point it to it.
Maybe I need to put it in a bin file?
Is there a way I can get this to work-
One of the sites is a banking insitution and some of the options require this jave in order for it to work.
And link the:
to the above directory. So:
ln -s /path/to/java/jre/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
You might also have a Netscape plugin directory, try:
And then check the directories, but I think that NS uses mozilla plugin directory so you should be fine with just the above.
It says its to install the SDK on RedHat 7.2, however, I used this guide, plus some general logic to install JUST the sun java runtimes (no SDK) on my RedHat 8.0 system and mozilla. The hardest part was tweaking the paths for the symbolic link to work. All is well w/ java now!
The commands seem pretty standard... i dont see why this guide wouldn't be a good aid w/ most distros.
