Missing JRE?

While trying to access a site the other day, I realized that my browser (FireFox was without a Java Runtime Environment and I was therefore unable to access certain Java applets from various websites. My Mandriva Linux Control Center wasn’t helpful at the moment (I spent only 3 minutes trying that route) so I turned to my good buddy, Google.

Sun’s Java site provided the installation guide that could be followed word for word for installation. In under five minutes, I was up and running with a JRE and could access annoyingly slow applets that were of true no use to me. Maybe one day I’ll find one that is of use to me.
