 I thought that Eric had setup the install for K12LTSP 64 bit versions so
that the 32 bit Firefox was the one installed.  This was to accomodate not
only Java but Flash ...

I left flash out but finally need Java.  I have run Flash before on my thin
clients being driven with 64 bit K12LTSP OS with no probs.

The 64bit openJDK plugin works. There a reason you need to use the official
Sun JVM?

Dumb question:

I've got a student that is doing a distance ed course using First Class... I
have run the Install Java from the additional programs folder in root.
(K12ltspel5 64 bit) and then run close and run Firefox.

about:plugins comes up with no plugins

I've checked to see if /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins has the sim link to the java
plugin and it does.

What do I do next?

There currently does not exist a 64-bit version of Sun's Java plugin. I
don't know if nspluginwrapper supports running the 32-bit plugin in a 64-bit
browser, but you could look into that. Otherwise you'll need to install a
32-bit browser.
