how to enable jdk for firefox on RHEL 5u3_64

In the past I have been able to enable the jdk plugin for firefox by doing:
ln -s /usr/java/latest/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

On this new box when i install jdk6.14 the /usr/java/latest/jre/plugin directory does not have the i386 sub directory or any reference to libjavaplugin_oji.so

Where is libjavaplugin_oji.so and/or how do I install the jdk plugin for firefox?

After installation of jdk, do this:

alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /usr/java/latest/bin/java 99
alternatives --config java
rm /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin.so
alternatives --install /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin.so libjavaplugin.so /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_14/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so 99
alternatives --config libjavaplugin.so

Restart firefox and in about:config check that
java.java_plugin_library_name is javaplugin

Works for me
