How do I install java plug-ins?

I am pretty new to Linux, and i wonder how to install java plug-in.

I have Red Hat Linux 9 and haven't installed any extra features yet, so i wonder what i need to install java plug-in and maybe if you could give me a tip of anything else i should install.

One more thing...

I can't get my mail function in linux to work with hotmail. Some tips there to would help a lot.

Thanks in advance

surf to and download a nice java-pack there, install it (it might even be a "self-extracting/installing binary file" or something), and then - if it doesn't automatically ask you, which it imo should do - just symlink a file to your plugins directory of the app you need. also, I suggest you get flash plugin for your browser. it's the same thing, just extract and symlink..
