which is your mozilla version?
Go to preferences->multimedia->java path (version 7.11)
and add the path to directory containing libjava.so,usually the jre directory,validate the directory and you are done,
to locate libjava.so try
locate libjava.so

I think the problem is the "~" character. Try replacing it with /home/<username> and re-issuing the ln command.

BTW, if you're looking for a HOW-TO website then www.tldp.org is for you. Plenty of info there. Some of it is a little old but it's certainly a good place to start looking.

possibly root hasnt run mozilla(not a good thing anyway) and thus does not have a .mozilla directory. i would suggest instead of putting the symlink in each user home directory you put it in mozillas general plugin directory so try instead

ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

Talking

I can't belive i reslove my first linux software problem with some help. guy's there is a version of java know as 1.3.1 its this version that is used in most of the web sites that i use for example if you guy's downloaded version 1.4.1 then trying visit my site www.ictunite.net

you will see that i have coded my java in version 1.3.1 so therefore i needed to download a older version

what puzzles me is that why does mozilla not support both version and when veiwing either version sites ie 1.3.1 or 1.4.1 it just switches automatically in between.

thanks for your support its a night mare if you are not used to commmand line and Unix as a whole with out you guys any newbie will just quit Linux which works fine when " you know how to"
