I can't get Java runtime to work in firefox. I have the java 1.6.0 plugin for firefox installed, via YAST but java doesn't work. I have no idea where to start.

Java should have been installed by default. How are you trying to install it?

Enter "about:plugins" in Firefox. Is java listed in the output?

I thought it was installed by default as well. And no firefox does not say I have a java plugin.
I used YAST to install the latest java run time environment (1.6.0) and I checked the java-firefox plugin in YAST as well.

I always seem to have this problem as well. Hopefully this will help....
You need to create a symbolic link to libjavaplugin_oji.so in .mozilla/firefox/plugins folder.
On my system the java plugin is located in /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6XXX/jre/plugins/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
If yours is different just do a search for the plugin in your system.
To create the link, go to the firefox plugins directory, start the command line and enter
ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6XXX/jre/plugins/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.soLinux. Get Counted!! http://counter.li.org/
