Angry java plugin for Mozilla on Suse 9.0

Although I have downloaded the Java RPM from Sun, I cannot register the plugin with my mozilla based browsers. It seems to work in Konqueror, but I don't use this browser as it it slow and cumbersome. I have tried the manual plug in registration instructions, but to no avail. I have Mozilla Firebird installed in my home directory and Mozilla in a system wide install at /usr/local/mozilla

I've come to terms with the lack of Shockwave in linux, but if I can't make java and Mozilla work together my kids won't be able to do anything online-and they might ask for Windows back!$#%^

Please help!

If you have Firebird and Mozilla installed the best thing to do (in my opinion) is to make a plugins folder in your mozilla profile and install the plugins in there. Firebird will scan your mozilla profile for plugins so you don't need to install them twice. If you delete Firebird and install a new one, no need to worry about the plugins. So
cd ~/.mozilla
mkdir plugins
cd plugins
ln -s /path/to/j2re1.4.2_"version"/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/
change the details so they match the folder names on your computer. If one letter is wrong the Symbolic link won't work. I find it easier to point, click, drag and drop.
It must be java1.4.2 as you must link to the compiled with gcc3.2.
Good luck.
