You should use the plugin for GCC 3.2, which is in the ns7 subdirectory (not ns7-gcc29). I just installed JDK 1.5.0 on my Linux machine and was able to start Firefox 1.0 successfully. The plugin is recognised correctly.
The symlink command I used is:
$ cd /my_firefox_dir/plugins
$ ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.5.0/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
(My Linux distribution also has GCC 3.3.1.)
