I've uninstall all my sun jre environmnets and downloaded the latest one (1.5.0_5) and was ablr to get it working with firefox. For the life of me I am not able to get it to work with IE6.0. I am running XP sp 2. Under internet options I went to advanced and selected the java tag. I aslo went to security and enabled scripts for java. I tried this with first 1.5 and then I went back and tried an older version 1.48. and still no luck. Can anyone advise on how to get java to work with IE or is it just hopeless?

Not sure about your problem since you give little information.
Did you try the menu Tools-"Sun Java Console"? Did java console show up when you clicked the menu?

- Go to Windows' Control Panel, click on the Java Cup to launch Java Control Panel (Since you have multiple versions of JREs installed, make sure it's the 1.5.0_0X JCP that you launch. Or just execute C:\Program Files\Java\\bin\javacpl.exe).
- go to "Advanced" tab -> tag support
- click to enable Internet Explorer and/or Mozilla and NS
- click OK
- restart your browser.
