As above the rpm from the java website will magically go poof, but I
have also had a weird issue with the Sun tarball.

One odd issue I'm having after installed the Sun tarball (I installed
it properly... or at least limewire works) is that the java plugin for
firefox doesn't work. I created a symlink between
/usr/lib/firefox/plugins and /opt/java... and it never seems to get
registered (never shows up on about:plugins). I am running the x86_64
version of FC4 with the i386 version of firefox installed. The flash
plugin and mplayer plugin are properly registered. The symlink to the
java plugin also is not broken.
