    IIRC you have to link the file libjavaplugin_oji.so to firefox's /plugins directory

    Exactly, you can create a link or add it to your path. I personally create the link. It's easier.

    Still problems... hrhh!!

    Ciao

    I did following:
    sh ./j2re-1_4_2_06-linux-i386-rpm.bin
    $ su
    rpm -e kaffe (this command will fail if kaffe isn't installed, that's ok)
    rpm -Uvh jre-1.3.1_02.i386.rpm (use the filename it just inflated)
    ls /usr/java
    ln -s j2re-1_4_2_06/usr/java/default (use the directory name printed in the previous step)
    wget -O /etc/profile.d/j2se.sh http://speculation.org/garrick/j2se.sh
    wget -O /etc/profile.d/j2se.csh http://speculation.org/garrick/j2se.csh
    chmod 755 /etc/profile.d/j2se.sh /etc/profile.d/j2se.csh
    exit

    which java
    j2re-1_4_2_06

    Harmful!!!
