    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


    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
