can't find java library to install plugin

I downloaded and sucessfully "installed" the java 1.5 plugin, although I have my doubts. However when I attempt to enable configure firfox I can't find the "ns7/" library. The ns directory does not exist?

I'm stuck at step # 2

[root@localhost i386]# pwd
[root@localhost i386]# ls -a
jvm.cfg        motif21        native_threads    server    xawt

[root@localhost i386]#
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20061219 Fedora/ Firefox/ pango-text

Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 #1 SMP Mon Oct 16 14:54:20 EDT 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Did I miss a step?

Go to /usr/java/jre1.5.0_10. There's a directory in there called plugin, which you should be in rather than in lib.

I see it now. I see my error when I re-read the directions. RTFM - doh!
