Java installed, but not working

I have Java intalled via the Add/Remove under the Applications menu, and the box for enable Java and enable Javascript are both checked in Firefox, but Java still won't run. The "verify" page on says I don't have it installed and so does my university's homepage.

My specs are in my sig. Does anybody know how to get it working?

Here is a link to the instructions for creating the symbolic link to the Java plugin for Firefox on Linux.

update-alternatives may play a role as well.. Debian uses gjc by default instead of Suns jre.
