Can't get applets to work in Mozilla

I assume that this issue is because I don't have the JRE (Java Runtime Environment) installed. I don't know how to go about verifying this or adding a plugin to Mozilla afterward.

Could anyone tell me:

1) How to determine if I have the JRE installed
2) Where to d/l it if I don't
3) How to go about installing it and any necessary plugins for Mozilla?

Download j2re-1_4_1_02-linux-i586.bin from

Copy it to the dir you wish to install it to, I copied it to /usr/local/etc

chmod a+x j2sdk-1_4_1_<version number>-linux-i586.bin


Hold down enter while it scrolls through the license agreement. Follow the steps from there..

Now the messy Mozilla part

Create a simlink in your Mozilla install directory (/usr/local/mozilla) to (/usr/local/etc/j2re1.4.1_02/plugin/i386/ns610)

I hope this helps ya
