    wow. i messed up real good LOL

    i found the folder and found flash plugins so i knew i was in the right spot. so i try to follow the java instructions which i must have read while having poop in my eyes...

    # cp javafile folder

    don't work... -> re-read manual
    omg ofcourse! it's "ln" and not "cp"

    # ln javafile folder

    shell says something bout creating "hard link" so i'm like "great lets have a look" (i test it with trying to open runescape which is a game that uses java)
    "java seems not to be installed and the applet cannot be run. click here to learn how to enable java in your browser"

    so i go through the enabling steps with a lot of trouble because the preferences layout has changed since the manual was written and FINALLY i find that.... java was already enabled... -> fail -> re-read manual


    oh man... i forgot the -s parameter...

    # ln -s javafile folder

    ->WORK!

    thanks man!! that worked 100% (at least if ur not a dummy like me ^^ )

    ps: in total, enabling java took me about 3.5 hours
