rom installing the first one you *should* have something like /usr/local/j2sdk1.4.0/jre/plugin/i386/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji140.so you now need to link this file to your mozilla plugins dircetory, e.g. /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

AWESOME, Chris, thanks so much for that. My directory was a little different, because I got the newest Java plugin, and it stuck it in /usr/java/...but it worked either way, thanks man.

I'm having the same problem, but I can't seem to find out where to make the link to. In other words, I can't find the plug in directory to make thie link to Mozilla in redhat 8.0.
I've tried linking it to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
But I keep getting the message: No such file or directory. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
