one symlink is needed indeed, from the mozilla plugins dir to your java
dir, on my system it was, in /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4.1/plugins:

libjavaplugin_oji.so ->
/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_01/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Another thing, if you want to use java for other things then the plugin,
you'll need to add the bin dir to the PATH, and set JAVA_HOME, which you
can do in /etc/profile:

JAVA_HOME="/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_01/"
 
PATH=$PATH:"/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_01/bin"
 
export PATH USER LOGNAME MAIL HOSTNAME HISTSIZE INPUTRC JAVA_HOME

best,

Maarten
