still no joy with RAC on PE2650 - solved

Well, that seemed to solve the problem.  I am loathe to install Netscape or Mozilla 
on my machine (I don't have anything against it really, but I already have Opera and
 IE and I don't need yet another browser).  So I uninstalled JVM 1.4.1 and installed
 1.4.2.  It still doesn't work in Opera, but it now DOES work in IE with JVM 1.4.2 
- even the remote console works well. (It did not work in IE previously.)   So, I'm 
suspecting this was a combination of RAC firmware and client side JVM which 
both needed updating.

I guess I'm a little disappointed, since OMSA works great in Opera,  I just assumed 
that it would work with RAC.  Oh well, at least it is working before I ship it 3000 miles 

Thanks to everyone for helping me troubleshoot this and getting the info to/from the 
right  people.
