Install Java Plugin for Firefox in Linux

Browser: Firefox 1.0.4
Distro: Fedora Core 4.
Need to Install Java Plugin.
- Download J2SE 1.5.0
- Install the RPM.
- Open a terminal and change to the Firefox plugin directory and symlink it the jre plugin just installed.

cd /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.4/plugins/
ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.5.0_04/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Help available at FireFox FAQ points to ns7-gcc29; linking to it Crashed my FireFox. So you need to link it to the correct plugin.
Faced problems like, only the root mode firefox displayed applets, but I tried again with uninstall and install and taking some care to be as user and then su to symlink and luckily the Java Plugin is installed for my FireFox!
