Download the binary from sun - You probably have already

Put it in the directory where you want it - You probably did that too

At the prompt type: sh nameofthebinary <Enter>

After reading the disclaimer from Sun press y <Enter>

That ought to do the trick

nameofthebinary = the j2re youve downloaded

After that you point OpenOffice - or whatever to that particular directory when compiling etc.

okay. gonna assume you unpacked the *.bin and installed the java rpm. do this:

1. cd /usr/lib/mozilla-1.1/plugins
2. rm -f libjavaplugin*.so
3. ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_02/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so

run mozilla. type in the address bar: aboutlugins

you should see java listed in there.

some things to make sure of though.

in #1 make sure that that's the correct directory for your version of mozilla. just look in /usr/lib and look at all the mozilla directories.
also run mozilla and do Help > About to make sure of the version of mozilla when you run it.

when mozilla's running, you made sure of the version in Help > About? also, you did restart mozilla, right? anyway, the path to mozilla is /usr/lib/mozilla-1.1, right? run this command:

ls -al /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_02/plugin/i386/ns610

post the output.

there's only 2 things i can think of. either java isn't installed correctly or the path to mozilla isn't right for the version you claim to be using.
