Question installing java plug ins for mozilla

Hi all you penguins!

I have just recently started using redhat 9, and need some help.
I am trying to install the java plugins, so i can use the yahoo chat service (if you know a way that I can do that with out the plugins, let me know). I've read the install info, and when i go to the cmd line and type what it says, it tells me there's no such file or directory. I have tried going to /usr/bin/mozilla/plugins (or something similar) and drag the appropriate files, but it tells me i don't have the proper credentials. Should I try that on my root account, and will it be a global change?

Thanks in advance,

Hi and welcome to!

Take a look in here:

that post is meant to help installing LimeWire (a P2P), but I also try to describe how to install the mozilla plugin.

If you have any problems, let me know

Good luck!
