I used the Install additional software -> Get Java method to install  
Java on a fresh K12LTSP 5EL server. Though it's not the latest  
version it seems to work fine on a console:

   $ java -version
   java version "1.5.0_10"
   Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_10-b03)
   Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 1.5.0_10-b03, mixed mode)

The browser plugin doesn't seem to be installed however, as all Java  
applets in Firefox show the puzzle piece icon and tell me to install  
a plugin. Is this a bug? Anything I can do to fix this?
