  Yes. I located,downloaded and installed the ..openjdk-plugin.. and I 
found this README:
The java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin subpackage contains a version of
gcjwebplugin that has been modified to run on the IcedTea class
libraries.  The package manages an alternatives symlink,
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/, so that gcjwebplugin is
recognized by the Firefox web browser.

/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ contains this *.so,
and in /etc/alternatives I find: -> /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0-openjdk/lib/i386/

So then it should go well to symlink -> /etc/alternatives/
in /opt/firefox7/firefox/plugins

but it does not work. No reference to a java plugin in Tools>Addons
but in about:plugines there is:

GCJ Web Browser Plugin (using IcedTea) 1.2
     The GCJ Web Browser Plugin (using IcedTea) executes Java applets.

Logon via bank ID fails. So it seems that this ios not compatible.

It seem that I have to plan for Fedora 14. Have you tried to install
from memeory stick?
