In Mozilla, click Help --> About Plugins. This will take you to the plugin page and you can d/l and install a number of plugins - Java included.

the easiest way if it works( it did not for me) click on a websight that uses java (as root). It will prompt you to install it. I was using mozilla 1.4

create a symlink from java*.so (whichever plugin you desire) to /usr/mozilla1.x/plugins....I hope that path was correct. It is the directory that holds your mozilla plugins. RH9 has two seperate instances of mozilla but the 1.4 was the correct location...then restart your brower. go to help/about pugins and they will show up.

install mozilla and j2re 1.4.2

goto mozilla plugin directory:

/usr/local/mozilla/plugins (?)

ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_01/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/

that's the case of RH9

if you follow codec's advice after install j2RE (which you can download from you're in business

also it depends on which browser you're using... when I was on mozilla 1.0 I needed the plugin from the -> ns610 <- directory... whereas for 1.4 you need the one in -> ns610-gcc32 <- as codec showed...

if you add one of them, restart your browser, and type as the address -> aboutlugins -> and see a whole bunch of java stuff you're set...
