Simple. You should have the java directory installed somewhere like
/usr/local/j2re1.4.1_01. The java plugin you want to use is in the
directory /usr/local/j2re1.4.1_01/plugin/i386/ns610/. You want to run
the following command as root.
ln -sf /usr/local/j2re1.4.1_01/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so
Feel free to change the directory where mozilla or the jre is installed.
Whatever you do, do NOT put the library file in the mozilla plugins
directory, make a symbolic link. Not doing this causes mozilla to die
and close itself.
Once the file is linked to go to mozilla and go to help -> about plugins
and java should be listed a bunch of times. Go and test that java works.
