Java and Mozilla problem

Hi, I am trying to install Java on Mozilla. Maybe I am doing something wrong...It does not work. What I did was this:

I got j2re-1_4_1_01-linux-i586.bin
I ran that and it extracted everything to the j2re1.4.1_01 directory.
I then from home/mog/j2re1.4.1_01/plugin/i386/ns610 made a sym link of to my Mozilla plugins directory.
It doesnt produce any errors, it just doesnt show java installed and I cant view any java.

if you have root access to the machine, do this:

symlink (ln -s) from the real [b] to the $MOZILLA/plugins directory:

[root@DaClown plugins]# cd /usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.1/plugins/
[root@DaClown plugins]# cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
(depending on what mozilla)
[root@DaClown plugins]# ln -s /usr/java/jre1.4.1/plugin

That should do it... note your version may be different in mozilla or the jre, so edit the command to match.
