I want to install java on my Fedora 8 server but come to the step 9 that is mentioned in this guide

but at step 10 when I enter this command:

ln -s /opt/jre1.6.0_18/plugin/i386/ns7/ /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

it gives the following error:

ln -s /opt/jre1.6.0_18/plugin/i386/ns7/ /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
ln: creating symbolic link `/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/': No such file or directory

Can you help me please?

This should probably be on superuser, but...have you tried creating that folder? – Syntactic May 24 '10 at 14:07
There is also the question - why do you need a Java browser plugin on a server :-) – Bozhidar Batsov May 24 '10 at 14:11
i don't want java browser.. i want to install java on server – Tushar Ahirrao May 24 '10 at 14:15
Then you can safely ignore this problem - this step of the installation is to get the Java plugin working in Firefox... – Bozhidar Batsov May 24 '10 at 14:28
