netscape to use mozilla plugins

Hi guys,

I was using mozilla till recently. I had to switch to netscape 7.1. I already have the bleeding edge plugins mozilla installed, like flashplayer, java etc and couple of skins for mozilla. The netscape loads the mozilla skin correctly. But doesn't budge to take the java plugin. How do i let netscape know that i have already installed the java plugin

Symlink or copy the plugins from the Mozilla plugins folder to the Netscape plugins folder. You'll most likely have to do this as root, as a normal user probably does not have write privileges to the directories.

Hope this helps.
