Did not work for me. My guess is that I have j2sdk-1.4.1_02-fcs from java.sun
installed. However, the blackstone is for j2sdk-1.4.1-01. Installation details
shown below. The java plugin shows up in Mozilla, but if I link to something
that uses java Mozilla hangs. 

Do you see anything I missed?

I guess I either wait for a gcc 3.2 from sun or I rpm -e the sun version and
install the blackstone version. 

Sun version of java installed:

[root team900 root]# rpm -qa | grep -i j2

Installed Mozilla 1.3

[root team900 root]# rpm -qa | grep -i mozilla

downloaded the Blackstone version of java

[admin team900 admin]$ d j2sdk-1.4.1-01-linux-i586-gcc3.2.bin
-rwxr-----    1 admin    admin         39M Mar 28 11:49

Extracted the plugin and copied it to the java plugin location and inserted
the required symbolic link

[admin team900 mozilla]$ pwd
[admin team900 mozilla]$ d
total 260K
drwxr-xr-x    2 admin    admin        4.0K Jan 13 10:03 ./
drwxr-xr-x    4 admin    admin        4.0K Feb 11 12:10 ../
-rw-r--r--    1 admin    admin        244K Jan 13 10:03 javaplugin_oji.so

Copied blackstone version after renaming the sun version:

[root team900 ns610]# pwd

[root team900 ns610]# d
total 532K
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     bin          4.0K Mar 28 14:46 ./

Thank you for the help.
