Installing Java on Mandriva Firefox 1.0.4 ?

Has anyone sucessfully installed java to firefox v1.0.4 (upgraded from firefox 1.0.2 prior trying java install) ?
I've followed the instructions on Sun's download page to no avail.
Please be specific in your response...noob here.

make a link in the plugin dir of your firefox installation dir.

for example:
"cd /path/to/firefox/install/dir/plugin"
"ln -s /path/to/java/dir/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/ ."

then restart firefox. In the address bar type: "about:plugins"
Do you see anything about Java there?

Book mark this site
it is very handy

here is the RPM for J2RE 1.5 for Mandrake 10.1
it is likely to be a fairly big file to download

basically download the file to a folder
add that folder to RPM thingy in MCC media manager
add the RPM using MCC install programme

hope this helps
