Can't find javadocs

NetBeans provides syntax highlighting javadoc help if the JDK javadocs are installed. I found this out by initially not seeing them while running NetBeans under linux. After I installed 'open6-jdk-javadocs' using the Synaptics package program they suddenly worked. I now use an iMac which doesn't use Synaptics to maintain installations; what steps do I take to make NetBeans see the javadocs? Should I manually install them in the iMac java directory?

Thanks for any help.

Either that or check for a file called docs.jar under your java installation directory.
My API docs are at file:///Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0_22-b04-307.jdk/Contents/Home/docs/api/index.html (I unjarred the docs.jar)
Incase you are interested in the actual source code, instead of the javadocs, check out
