Redhat 9 and Java

So I'm pretty new to Linux... I have messed with it a bit before, but I am still pretty lost with everything.

So I decided to install Java, so I could use Java applets on the net... I followed the instructions on the Java site to a T and it won't work. I am using Mozilla 1.2.1...

Is Java not compatible with this version or what? Help??

hi ,

So I decided to install Java, so I could use Java applets on the net
i don't really understand what u ment by this but u don't need java on u'r machine in order to could use applets on the net because u'r internet browser have one (( it have not really the whole java , but the part to run applets ))

to download java visit [URL=] , : download >> java 2 standard edition >> j2se 5.0 >> JDK 5.0 update 4 >>
linux platform ?? Linux RPM in self-extracting file ...... then follow the instalation instructions ..

good luck ,

You should **seriously** consider upgrading...the latest version is 1.7.8.
