    It doesn't work that way. An appropriate Java runtime is not provided with
    the typical Linux distribution.

    1. Download and install an appropriate Java runtime package from
    java.sun.com.

    2. Make a symbolic link to the appropriate Java browser plugin from your
    browser's plugin directory. Do not try to do this in any other way -- the
    reasons you must do this in just this way are baroque and legion.

    For example, I have a symbolic link ...

    To: /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_01/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so

    From: /netbackup/downloads/Linux/firefox/firefox-installer/plugins

    Your paths will almost certainly be different.

    That's what I'm wondering about. My best guess is:

    j2re-1_4_2_05-linux-i586-rpm.bin

    which I found at java.com. The problem is that the only platforms
    listed are:

    Red Hat 7.3 or
    Red Hat 8.0 or
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS 2.1 or
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES 2.1 or
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 2.1 or
    SuSE 8.0 or
    TurboLinux 7.0 or
    SLEC 8

    Do I have the right package?

    Yes, you have the correct package, good guess!

    As root (or equivalent) from the console or xterm session where the
    downloaded package is stored at do;

    $ chmod +x j2re-1_4_2_05-linux-i586-rpm.bin

    $ j2re-1_4_2_05-linux-i586-rpm.bin

    And follow the instructions for plug-in symbolic linking found here;

    Thanks. I managed to install it. The instructions are wrong though.
    They don't tell you to rpm -ivh the resulting file from running
    j2re.yadda.yaddda.yadda.bin.

    Yes the instructions at the sun site do... from;
    http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/jre/i...ml#install-rpm

    3. Become root by running the su command and entering the super-user
    password.

    4. Run the rpm command to install the packages that comprise the Java 2
    Runtime Environment:

    rpm -iv j2re-1_4_2_-linux-i586.rpm

    Scroll down the page and find the section;

    To install the Linux RPM (self-extracting) file

    step 7 reads;

    # Run the RPM command at the terminal to install the packages. Type:

    rpm -iv j2re-1_4_2_04-linux-i586.rpm
