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.

Java compiler works correctly, but it's jre part not. The problem is how it is shown by the browser. If I see applet correctly, is dependant on where a file is placed. Most problems arise when I place file on a usb drive.
EDIT: I think installation is not a part of my problem, because I do not have any problems with applets from the web. I am almost sure I installed Slackware package.

No, not really. It would be too simple. It works sometimes, and sometimes it doesn't. In USB it doesn't work at all with opera, but usually works with konq. Now I'm frustrated with it cause been trying to fix it whole day. It even doesn't behave the same way with two applets from the Desktop (where the other one is the copy of first), while konq shows normally (there are some places where konq doesn't (URI error), but I've already fixed this (solution was not to use kde media).
I don't really know. I mean if you installed it correctly it should work. But, I never (or very rarely) use konqueror and opera. I know that java works fine in FF, never had a problem with it. Especially as you say that it sometimes works sometimes doesn't.
Hmmm ... maybe try the latest jre from the official java site ?
P.S. I hate IE, but let's face it ... 99.999 % of all users use it (or what is it now, 99.998 % ?)

Distribution: Slackware 12 Kernel 2.6.24 - probably upgraded by now
Why don't you try and use JRE/JDK 6? They don't need a package .... just a folder .. you can put it in /opt/jre and /opt/jdk .. and then add their respective bins to your PATH. Btw, could you show us your PATH (echo $PATH in bash)
