this is probably a little touchy to ask...

This, by the way, is probably the correct and only answer the OP was  
looking for. I had Java working just fine in a previous install, but  
hadn't bothered with it lately so I didn't want to answer the OP and  
possibly misinform. The OP didn't mean to troll (thus the non-descriptive  
yet truthful subject line), but we got treated to a big pointless  
discussion of whether or not Java is useful/evil anyway, with the added  
joy for some of us of receiving many copies of the responses thanks to the  
cross-posting. Sometimes people just want the _technical_ answer, not the  
_political_ one, regardless of the strength of your convictions.
