Installing Java?

Need help installing Java on Mandrake 8.1. I've tried several times with no luck. Not sure what I'm doing wrong or not doing. I tried installing from a .bin file, rpm file and letting mozilla doing the install, all with no luck.

no error message

I'm not getting any error messages, but when I go to a page that has Java I get the install plugin box. On all the installs I tried everything seem to go ok.
