at which point of the java installation routine listed here https://www.linux-noob.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=1707 are you getting stuck ? please give all error messages that you get so we can determine whats not working

 

Now lets install Java

 

For the newest version of java. Go to Sun http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/download.jsp and download the Jre self extracting rpm. (referred to as JRE 5.0 Update 4 includes the JVM technology.The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications. )

 

If you want a painless install download from the link below

[URL=http://jdl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=10148]Download Java[/URL]
chmod +x jre-1_5_0_04-linux-i586-rpm.bin
./jre-1_5_0_04-linux-i586-rpm.bin
rpm -ivh jre-1_5_0_04-linux-i586-rpm --nodeps
unlink /usr/bin/java
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0_04/bin/java /usr/bin/java
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0_04/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

 

to verify Java is properly installed in Firefox type
