I'd be interested to hear how you got Sun's Java working, it's eluded me so far.

I tried rebuilding from JPackage nosrc RPMs (with my F7 spec file), but the
resultant packages want the XFS font server installed.. 

I've also tried installing the Sun binary RPM and the -compat RPM from JPackage,
the plugin showed up in Firefox, but I never got any applets to start up..
