How to install JAVA in FC3.
I did an installation on a second pc. I had such a headache installing JAVA after I ran all the updates. Many threads point to this download site. Which I think is incorrect. The real download is here. You need to go to the LINUX RPM (self-stracting file) and click on the YELOW download button to begin your donwload.
Once you download is done open the terminal and become root and type:

UnZipSFX 5.40 of 28 November 1998, by Info-ZIP (Zip-Bugs@lists.wku.edu).
And from here all you do is install the rpm:
rpm -ivh j2re-1_4_2_06-linux-i586.rpm
UPDATED: I did not have to create the link for java but just in case this is how you do it:
su - ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_06/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

JAVA in FC3 issues
I am trying to get DVArchive to work in FC3. A prerequisite is Java. I followed the instructions that imdeemvp provided (thanks, BTW) but I am getting an error when I run DVArchive. To ensure that Java is installed correctly, I visited the link you provided and when I do, my browser crashes. What can I do? I am pretty new to all this so if I should be posting in another forum, please let me know.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
