Java/Firefox java plugin not working with HP Webjetadmin

ok, I am trying to access the webjetadmin site on my LAN with my Firefox browser on SuSe 10. Firefox prompted me to install the JRE manually. I downloaded jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586-rpm file from SUN, installed it, ran the ln -s /usr/java/..blah blah/ to /opt/MozillaFirefox/plugins/ dir. as directed by Sun, then restarted Firefox and attempted to hit the webjetadmin site. I still get prompted to install the java plugin. I have mozilla installed and configured as well, it does the same thing. Any thoughts?
