Has anyone installed Opera in Fedora 8? If so how can I get Java 6 to work in it? If you don't have Opera how can you get Java to work on Firefox?

Use the search tool to locate the many post on Java install and setup.
Is the machine OS 32bit or 64bit?
If 64bit then you will need to use Icedtea Java.
If 32bit then you can go with the standard Sun or IBM Java. Then install the plugin. many post on either setup.

Will IcedTea work for every Java applet because when I checked firefox with about: plugins I saw Iced tea and i have a 32-bit system.

Since you have 32bit then stay with the standard Sun Java. Icedtea is for 64bit systems.

Ok but the .bin file that gives me is giving a hemorage. I am a little used to linux mostly yellow dog on my ps3, but this is just confusing. I have compiled tar.gz files but not .bin files.

You execute the file like so. Probably need to make it an executable first.
chmod + x name_of_file.bin
./name_of_file.bin

Do I do that after or before I cd to it?

Must be in the directory where the file is. Also root is required to run the bin file.

I already used those and when I went to www.runescape.com which runs on Java, it said that it didn't detect it.

Delete the current softlink for the java plugin and redo again. Using the ln command will not overwrite an existing softlink.
