Question JDK binary file install


Hi,
I have downloaded the J2SDK binary file which is 25 Megs, I know what to do with RPM's but this ends in ....i386-rpm.bin. What has to be done with a binary file or can you get Java as a normal RPM.

Thanks Mark.

Junsta hunch, but did you get it from sun.com?If so, just execute it. Change to the directory it is in and
Code:
./yourfile.bin
If that fails, nake sure the executable bit is set (chmod +x yourfile.bin) and that you have the right permissions.
