To make a symbolic link, use the following syntax:
Code:
ln -s path_to_the_file_you_want_linked
If you want Java in Mozilla, you will have to use the plugin in the ns600 directory.

If the j2re was installed using RPM, you can using any RPM management GUI tool.
Or you can uninstall RPMs at the command line using:
Code:
rpm -e package_name

#mkdir -p /usr/java
#cp j2re-1_3_1_08-linux-i586.bin /usr/java
#cd /usr/java
#chmod 700 j2re-1_3_1_08-linux-i586.bin
#./j2re-1_3_1_08-linux-i586.bin
# ln -s /usr/java/jre1.3.1_08/plugin/i386/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla-1.3/plugins/

This is what I've done and it works perfectly, bye
