Mozilla and Java

Alright, I'm using Mozilla 1.4 (Galoen and Epiphany 1.0 actually, but based off mozilla) and I've tired to install Java several times. I've used mozilla and folloed the link to the netscape place to install it. I've installed that as well as gone to and downloaded VM for linux from their site. None the less I'm unable to get Java 1.4 installed....anyone have issues concerning this and know any fixes?


P.S. BTW I'm using RH 9.0 with GNOME 2.4 rpms. Sorry almost forgot to mention that

I had some problems with java in mozilla too, but the plug-in websites (from mozilla and java) helped me a lot.

for some distributions, you need to install the blackdown version.

Don't ask me what the difference is though

yes go for blackdown java. i have been having this problem of mozilla 1.4/java for long. lastly after installing suse8.2 and using the blackdown java supplied in its cd, java plugin in mozilla actually worked!! and don't forget to create only a 'link' of the java-plugin in the mozilla plugin directory but i think u know this already
