Hey, D.
I got the java plugin to work on linux finally.  Here's what I did:
(1) Download a good version of the Java2 JRE.  (Mostly this means that
the JRE needs to be built with GCC 3.2).  You can get it here:
(2) Extract the binary:
chmod a+x j2re-1.4.1-01-linux-i586-gcc3.2.bin
(3) Move the j2re-1.4.1 directory from your home directory to wherever you
want it to reside.  I put it in /usr/java/jre-1.4.1
mv j2re-1.4.1 /usr/java/jre-1.4.1
(4) Create a link from the plugins directory of your mozilla installation
to the plugin inside /usr/java/jre-1.4.1:
cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
ln -s /usr/java/jre-1.4.1/plugin/i386/mozilla/
(5) Exit and restart mozilla.
