Installed Firefox 1.04 on XP computer--Java works fine

Installed 1.04 on Win98SE computer---Nothing I have tried will get Java to run.

Suggestions?

Thanks

Given only what is in your post, I'd go to sun.com and install a JAVA JRE. I'd also enable JAVA/JAVASCRIPT in FireFox.

Do I need more?
I find the Java site semi-bewildering so perhaps I have not been successful downloading all needed files---

Files? I downloaded ONE .EXE and that was that.
