If you require Sun's Java2 plugin, these problems fade away.  For a one
time download, I wouldn't bother to download the needed 6+ MB.  I also
think, that the latest AOL 5.0 CD also contain the Java2 JRE (runtime
environment) but I may be wrong.

And if you don't want to write Java code, what's about a Self->Java cross
compiler? :-)
