Exclamation Make browsers use Java

I'm having a problem that's the configuration of Java. I use SuSE 8.0, w/Konqueror, Netscape 7.0 and Opera 6.11, but none of them make the Java works. I downloaded the Java2 SDK 1.4.1 and installed it. But still I can't use my internet banking because of the Java isn't found by the browsers.
I found an answer to that here at the forum which is copy the into the plugins directory of Netscape. I did that, and it didn't work, so please, help me, but in a very easy way of explaining because I don't know any codes at the console. Thank you;

You cannot just simple copy the java plugin. You have to make "symbol link" to the and put it into the "plugin" folder of the netscape.

Assuming that
The location of your netscape 7.0 is "/usr/local/netscape".
The location of your j2sdk is "/usr/local/j2sdk1.4.1_01".

At the console, type

ln -s /usr/local/j2sdk1.4.1_01/jre/plugin/i386/ns610/ /usr/local/netscape/plugin/

Make changes the command according to your path. It's the same way for the opera.

And don't forget to turn on Java in your web browsers.

Oh and many Websites are built for Internet Explorer. Don't be surprised if it doesn't work. You can test it at
