Java in browsers in Linux - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

A web site informs me that the appropriate java plugin is not installed to show some thing. I go to Sun. I install the appropriate rpm (jre-1.3.1_09.i586.rpm) Java is now installed. I go back to the page. Same result. Plugin not installed. This happens with both mozilla and galeon. I tried logging out and in. I tried it as root. What am I supposed to do? Thanks...

    You'll want to make a symbolic link (ln -s) to the java plugin in your
    browser's plugins directory. This is generally a folder in .mozilla in
    your home directory (for Mozilla, I'm not sure about galeon as I don't
    use it). This applies of other plugins as well, such as flash or
    acrobat files. Sorry about the vaigueness of the response; I don't know
    the exact locations of files on your machine so look around. If no one
    else posts a reply to this with more specifics, contact me and try to
    help you some more.

    First, you should get jre 1.4.2. 1.3.1 is old. Also versions prior to
    1.4.1 had security vulnerabilities.

    Then

    ln -s
    /usr/java/<version>/plugin/i386/<ns610|ns610-gcc32>/libjavaplugin_oji.so
    /usr/lib/mozilla-<version>/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

    Precompiled binaries of Mozilla 1.4 were compiled with gcc 3.2, so use
    the ns610-gcc32 plugin. Others use the ns610 plugin. If you compiled
    your own, you get to figure it out.
