Just download the j2re-1_4_2_02-linux-i586.bin from 
in a terminal:
  $ chmod 755 j2re-1_4_2_02-linux-i586.bin
  $ ./j2re-1_4_2_02-linux-i586.bin

at this point, you have (as I remember), a directory j2re-1_4_2_02
look inside this directory and search for
you have to create a symlink in ~/.mozilla/plugins/
  $ ln -s /path/to/ ~/.mozilla/plugins/

for me: 
  $ ls -la ~/.mozilla/plugins -> /usr/local/j2sdk/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/
