if you'd like to install java using a repository (so it gets
automatically updated), follow these instructions :

1. open a terminal

2. type "sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list"

3. at the end of that file, put in "deb breezy java" (replace breezy with
hoary if that's what you're using)

4. save & close

5. type "sudo apt-get update"

6. type "sudo apt-get install sun-j2re1.5" (or, for developers,
"sudo apt-get install sun-j2sdk1.5")

7. to link to firefox, type " sudo ln -s
