You have to make sure that when you install java you're also installing the plugins for the browser you're using.

If you're using mozilla, update to mozilla 1.4 ( and then go here (

If you're using konquerer, try this. (

If you're using another browser just search with google like this "<name of browser>"+"java" or replace java with "java plugin"

That should get you the information that you want

Hey, me again

Never mind what I said. Just for the heck of it I went to to check it out (never been there before) and I received an error too. My java works on may other sites (yahoo games, chat programs and most games) so it's probably something with the site and linux version of java.

Keep trying, see if anyone knows anything. It might be like flash though. I installed the newest version of flash but when you go to sites that have the coolest programs it will say that you don't have a new enough version of flash installed on your computer.

Good luck
