You're on the right track with libjavaplugin_oji.so. But what you need is a
symbolic link to that file in the plugins directory for Netscape. If you just
untarred it, plugins will be a sub-directory of your main Netscape directory.
If it's an RPM or something, you may have to dig around to find the plugins
directory that Netscape is using.
