The above discussion was about my i386 test machine, I can't get it to 
work on my new amd64 machine, ie. about:plugins shows no Java plugin 
loaded.  I tried it using both ~/mozilla/plugins and ~/firefox/plugins.

:~/firefox/plugins$ ls -l
total 16
lrwxrwxrwx 1 jim jim    58 2010-01-25 22:43 libnpjp2.so -> 
/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.15/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 jim jim 15716 2010-01-15 16:41 libnullplugin.so

This seems to indicate that the link was established.

Just to further my education what does total 16 represent?

I am unsure what I did wrong.
