firefox link to java doesnt work

I just created a link in my firefox plugins directory, per the instructions to the libjavaplugin file. Unfortunately, I still get the plugin missing error. Here is my link as specified in the firefox plugins directory: -> /usr/java/jrel.6.0_03/plugin/i386/ns7/
Is it correct?

Thanks in advance!

Is your setup 32bit or 64bit?

i.e. uname -a

about:plugins on my copy of Firefox using a 32 bit copy of Ubuntu shows:

I didn't do anything other than install packages such as sun-java6-plugin using the synaptic package manager. I can run Java applets. Perhaps you'd have better luck using your distro's package manager.

Thank You

Thank you both for your replies. I created a link to the mozilla folder as well and my java now appears to run. The suggestion to use the package manager is being implemented as I type. Such a simplistic solution! Thanks again!
