If you use SuSETM and your Netscape NavigatorTM refuses to launch our Java applet, please try the following procedure.
After backing up your files, remove the '.netscape' directory from your home directory and launch Netscape at a terminal by typing './netscape' in the '/opt/netscape' directory. This will copy the configuration that allows Netscape to launch Java classes in the newly created '.netscape' directory.
Another way to enable Java is to install JRE (Java Runtime Environment). To do this, visit the website www.blackdown.org and download the file 'jre118*'. We recommend installing version 1.1.8 or later."
