Mozilla s not loading applets

This is Ramya.

I ve been trying to run applets on my Mozilla(1.7.12 release 5) web browser which came with fc5.It gives me a peice of a jig-jaw puzzle indicating i need a plug in.

I ve downloaded and installed jre1.4.2_12 and j2sdk1.5.0_11 according to instructions in the sun website.It does not help.

Does any1 have a clue wat s wrong??
It ll be of great help to figure this out-stuck with a proj!!

You need to symbolically link the Java plugin module to your mozilla plugin directory (/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins). Eg if you installed Java in /opt/java, you should see a file named "libjavaplugin_oji.so" in the /opt/java/plugin/i386/ns7 directory. The following command will link the plugin for you:
ln -s /opt/java/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
and then restart Mozilla.

(you'll need to do this from a terminal window as root and obviously change /opt/java to wherever you installed Java)

You only need download one of this: jre (virtual machine) or j2sdk(virtual machine+development tools).
Install one of this and then you must make a symbolic link. You need know where was installed Java
Then you must make this (as root):
ln -s java_path/.../plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

Thanks for the help...
I did try creating a symbolic link..but it still does not work..
wat s even more confusing is mozilla folder is available in 3 places..all of which contain the plugin folder...in /usr/include( has 2 folders-1 mozilla,1 mozilla1.7.12)...in /usr/lib..and i ve created the link at all 3 places :-)..
Pretty much a novice at this..
Thanks again
