java in feather

I have just installed java and am having trouble making a symbolic link to my firefox browser.

I have entered:
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0/plugin/i386/ns7/

this is the correct directory name as i have checked many times.

I get the message:
bash: ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0/plugin/i386/ns7/ No such file or directory

Can anyone help?

You are not doing it correctly. The correct syntax is "ln -s <location of the original file> <location for the target/link>. Basically, it should be something like this:

ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0/plugin/i386/ns7/ /home/<your user>/.mozilla/plugins/

Note: the above won't work. You need to link your java plugin to your plugins directory in mozilla directory at your home.
