how can I make java applets working in mozilla?
I'm running Sarge .. mozilla 1.0, jdk1.1
Java is enabled in mozilla.

If you want painless, then do this.  Put this line in your
/etc/apt/sources.list file.

 deb http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/devel/lang/java/blackdown.org/debian woody non-free


 apt-get update
 apt-get install j2re1.3
I have had this working at one time but through some series of upgrades I now get on my somewhere between testing and unstable system:

joy:/home/paul# apt-get install j2re1.3
