Question Help installing the Java JDK

I just tried installing the JRE going through sun's instructions. i know that the jre did install in my /usr/java directory. but i do not think it is working with firefox?? when i go to test java on suns java test website firefox says i have missing plugins. do i have to take more steps? the JRE is installed but do files need to be copied to other directories? How would this apply to the JDK? I have installed the JDK in windows the only tricky part was to remember to set the path. do i have to do the equivalent in linux for firefox to see my JRE and eventually when i decide to install the JDK?



P.S. I am Running SuSE Linux

Sorry, that was a little over my head. I posted in the general forum too. Maybe you can take a look at my second post there. it has details on what I am thinking of trying. if i try the second post is there any possibility that my system would be unreliable?
