    When I tried to install the Sun Java plug-in to, I got error message
    that the new version of Sun Java Runtime Environment is not compatible
    with Windows 98 ((build 4.10.1998). I had a previous version of JRE
    (4.2.06) which frequently caused system freezes, so I uninstalled it.
    Any ideas on any way to download, install, and run a previous version of
    Sun JRE that works with Firefox 1.01? (Or perhaps other workardounds to
    be able to view pages that require Sun Java?)

    What is more, the download page at
    lists only Windows 98 (2nd Edition) and later under System Requirements,
    and not the first edition of Windows 98.
    I'm running JRE 1.4.1_01 on Win 98 (1st edition) without system freezes.
    Previous versions are available from

    According to the installation notes, Java 1.4.1_01 and Java 1.4.2_06 are
    each compatible with Win 98 (1st edition).
