I found the solution was to IGNORE the Windows download completely and use
the Java MP3 Manual Installation found here:

http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/jmf/mp3/download.html

Download the version for "Other Platforms" and unzip into your Java
directory, which will be something like C:/Program Files/Java/j2re1.4.2-06 -
the mp3plugin.jar file should then end up in the C:/Program
Files/Java/j2re1.4.2-06/lib/ext subdirectory.
