/usr/lib/i386/libjavaplugin_nscp.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
You cannot symlink to the "folder", you must symlink to the correct file in the JRE directory. For my FC3 system, to get the Java plugin working in firefox, I installed firefox, then changed to the plugins/ directory, and did
ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so libjavaplugin_oji.so
After restarting FireFox, I had the Java plugin working. I notice you seem to point to the ncp plugin, which is for Netscape Java support, is it not?
As far as I know, to get Java support in firefox, you must symlink to the file as show above in your Firefox install's plugins/ directory.
BTW - I still have the 1.4 version of the JRE, if you have the new 1.5 version this might be different...
