Java 6 Update 12 on Debian 5.0


I want to use Java 6 Update 12 on my Debian 5.0 installation, because it is the latest version.

Here's the guide I followed, translated from Danish to English by Google: http://74.125.79.132/translate_c?hl=...HVx8Gm78et3jGg

But can not get the plugin in Iceweasel to work. I can't find it even if it should be there.

How do I get it to work?

Edit Iceweasel's plugins directory and create a symbolic link to javaplugin for Iceweasel;
Code:
ln -s [TARGET DIRECTORY OR FILE] ./[SHORTCUT]

why does everyone insist on doing things the hard way?

apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin

Installs:
File name: /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.12/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_12
