Hi smfinley, thank you for the link for the java and other installs. However I am still struggling with this Java install...everything seemed to work until I get to the end...and I receieved this...
ln -s /opt/jrel.5.0_06/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
ln: `/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so': File exists

I changed 'mozilla to firefox 1.0.7...went to the dslreports page and still no java. I restarted the computer (for a just in case thing---although I know it is not necessary)...still no luck....any suggestions. All help in this matter is greatly appreciated.

If the file exists then remove it first. It came from something you did or installed previously. (As root "rm /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so".)

Thank you for the reply...I did the first command of rm mozilla...reinstalled or retyped the command ln -s etc. it went to command prompt, started firefox...still nothing then I tried :
ln -s /opt/jrel.5.0_06/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.7/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
ln: `/usr/lib/firefox-1.0.7/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so': File exists
[root@localhost ~]# rm /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.7/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
rm: remove symbolic link `/usr/lib/firefox-1.0.7/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so'? y
[root@localhost ~]# ln -s /opt/jrel.5.0_06/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.7/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
My question is...should I remove one...(still a newbie )---then restart firefox

You can have as many symbolic links pointing to /opt/jrel.5.0_06/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so as you want. They're like "shortcuts" in Windows. So no you don't have to remove them as long as they actually point to /opt/jrel.5.0_06/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so. You could change to the /opt/jrel.5.0_06/plugin/i386/ns7/ directory and make sure libjavaplugin_oji.so is actually there.
Code:
cd /opt/jrel.5.0_06/plugin/i386/ns7/
Code:
ls
