A quick breakdown, for more info, check the link above:
download java: www.blackdown.org
Install it
symlink:
ln -sf /path/to/java/jre/plugin/i386/libjavaplugin.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

for the "permission denied" thing. Try running the browser as root.

According to mozilla www.mozdev.org sun's version of java is best for its latest stable version of mozilla 1.4. If you go to http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/linux.html you will find out how to install all the plugins for mozilla and where to find them to include java. The latest version of java is 1.4.2 and it works great with mozilla. You should install as root and remember to create a symbolic link to the java plugin (don't copy).
