Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have the same problem with my Redhat 9 install. I have attempted to install both the blackdown port and the Sun Beta (j2sdk 1.4.2 Beta) on my system. I followed the directions explicitly and created a path in ~/.bash_profile. Now, when I type javac, I get a list of arguments, as it says I should. I have both a /mozilla and a /mozilla-1.2.1 in my /usr/lib/, so I made a symlink in each directory's plugins subdirectory. My command was:
ln -s /usr/local/j2sdk1.4.2/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so .
I did this while in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and again in /usr/lib/mozilla-1.2.1/plugins. When I ls -l it shows the valid path after the symlink.
After all of this, I still don't get a plugin in my browser. What did I miss?
I followed everything on that page exactly, and step by step, and the end result was a fully compatible and functioning set of java plugins in mozilla. This does not use blackdown though, it uses sun's j2re.
zakl- Thanks for the website, but it gives basically the same instructions as the blackdown.org and Sun sites. The only difference was the warning of the bug in versions of Mozilla, but I am using a more current version than that.
mozilla 1.2.1 build 2030225
I can't find any indication of gcc-java being installed.
Your welcome... btw, I didn't notice your question about what to use for Redhat 9, but I used those instructions on my redhat 8 box, and this box was Redhat 9 before I switched to Gentoo. And by those directions, my redhat 9 mozilla install worked great too.
Well, I solved it in a rather unorthodox way. Installing either JRE or SDK was unsuccessful, so I decided to try it with Netscape. I downloaded 7.02 and went to the java page. It asked me if I wanted to download the plugin, and I did. It installed JRE in /usr/java, and I symlinked the file to the plugins directories of both Netscape and Mozilla. It works. Wish I knew the difference between this and the way I was doing it before (the way everyone recommended doing it).
