firefox not loading applets

Hi, I am at a loss, I won't toot my own horn, I'm just a stupid bloke who can't get it.
I downloaded and installed java1.6.0_02
I did the following :
[joe@localhost ~]$su - root 
[root@localhost joe]# cd /usr/local/src/
[root@localhost src]# mv jre
jre-6-linux-i586.bin    jre-6u2-linux-i586.bin  jre1.6.0_02/            
[root@localhost src]# mv jre1.6.0_02/ /opt/
[root@localhost src]# ln -sf /opt/jre1.6.0_02/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
[root@localhost src]# ln -sf /opt/jre1.6.0_02/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/firefox-
[root@localhost src]# ls -ladh /opt/jre1.6.0_02/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/firefox- 
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 134K 2007-06-15 08:28 /opt/jre1.6.0_02/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   53 2007-10-02 03:18 /usr/lib/firefox- -> /opt/jre1.6.0_02/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   53 2007-10-02 03:17 /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so -> /opt/jre1.6.0_02/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
[root@localhost src]#
I logout of X session, restart X, go to firefox and it shows up in about: plugins in the address bar ..... there it says it is installed. However, it does not load applets.

Also, yes, I have turned on java in the browser.

[root@localhost joe]# ln -sf /opt/jre1.6.0_02/bin/java_vm /usr/bin/java_vm 
[root@localhost joe]# ls -lah /usr/bin/java_vm 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 28 2007-10-02 17:01 /usr/bin/java_vm -> /opt/jre1.6.0_02/bin/java_vm
I've changed the "alternatives" setting repeatedly. I just overwrote the file with a symbolic link this time. I'm truly lost without my java VM

rm -rf /opt/jre*
rm /usr/bin/java_vm
Then install the java rpm

wget http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=11283
yum -y install compat-libstdc++* 
sh ./jre*.bin
ln -sf "$(rpm -ql jre|grep plugin|grep ns7/|grep \\.so$)" /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
/usr/sbin/alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java $(rpm -ql jre | grep bin/java$) 2
/usr/sbin/alternatives --config java
and select the jre version
