Got it. Thanks.

I followed the instructions on your web site to install and configure it. What do I do with the update 6 version? Is it safe to just delete the entire folder now that I have update 7 installed, or is there a specific procedure I need to follow to get rid of it?

Respectfully,

Stephen

Hello:
I would also be interested in how to properly get rid of version 6?
I guess it's not hurting anything sitting there, just a house keeping thing.

Yes, just do a "rm -rf /opt/jre1.5.0_06" as root to remove it recursively. Also remember to do a "rm /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so" as root before you do your "ln -s /opt/jre1.5.0_07/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so" to get rid of the old symbolic link for your Firefox and Mozilla plugin.
