so you did a cd to there, right? then it doesn't matter. the only thing that matters is that when you run mozilla and go to Help > About that the mozilla version displayed is 1.2.1

you did do "ls -al /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_02/plugin/i386/ns610" (no quotes) right?
if so, that narrows it down. what happens if you do:

ls -al /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_02

make sure the j2reXXXXX i put in the command is the java version you downloaded. if that shows up no directory found, then java isn't installed.

actually, i'm using the sdk too. i thought you were using the jre. so then:

1. cd /usr/lib/mozilla-1.2.1/plugins
2. rm -f libjavaplugin*.so
3. ln -s /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_02/jre/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so

and restart mozilla

edit: yep you are running the sdk. i misread your post when you posted your package.
