HELP! - Java plugin will not install

I have been at this for hours and have been reading more posts that I thought could exist.

I downloaded and installed the rpm from sun. I created the links to the plugins directories. 'java -version' gave me a 'command not found' so I created /etc/profile.d/ It took me many hours just to get this far. Below is the info I have. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP.

cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike)

Help->About Mozilla
Mozilla 1.4.2
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.2) Gecko/20040308

rpm -q j2re

cat /etc/profile.d/
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/bin
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/

ls -l $HOME/.mozilla/plugins
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 67 Jul 6 05:58 -> /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/

ls -l /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4.2/plugins/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 67 Jul 6 06:10 -> /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/

hi GordGray,

try using from the ns610 folder instead of the one in ns610-gcc32.
