Java Plugin problem on Netscape 7.2/Mozilla 1.6

I'm using FC2, and netscape 7.2. I installed the java rpm from the sun website, and it works fine, but the browser plugins don't.

When I copy it into the plugin directory, the browser exits, when I try to run a Java application (chat). The same thing happens in Mozilla.

I tried to install JRE from tar.gz, and dag's rpms too, but they did'nt solve my problem

I tried all three plugins, but with ns610-gcc32, the browser doesn't start and ns410 is not working too.

Please HELP!!

You can't copy the java plugin, but must instead symbolically link it. Otherwise netscape or mozilla will crash. To link it, go to your plugins directory and link to the java plugin, like:
cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
ln -s /path/to/java/plugin
