Question Mozilla not showing plugger

I installed mozilla 1.7.11 after unintalling mozilla 1.4.2. Now all of my plugins are gone. I checked the about plugins under Mozilla's help, but the programs that are in the plugins folder (usr/lib/mozilla/plugins) are not on the help page. And please, no RTFM's - I am but could use some help also.

Talking got it working

I had to find the right file to put the symbolic link into first (usr/lib/mozilla/plugins). Next in Terminal I CD'ed over to that file, then I made a symbolic link to the file (ln -s /home/xxxx/plugger/plugger-5.1.3/ What really complicated it was I had a typo in my first attempt. That created a "blind link" and since there was already a link, it would not let me create another one of the exact same name. Once I realized that and deleted the blind link, everything worked great.
And you have to in root to do this too.
