Don't put the "*" at the front. Just sh ./j2r-1_4_2-linux-i586-rpm.bin.

This may be a dumb question but are you in the same directory as the file j2re-1_4_2-linux-1586-rpm.bin? Need to be in the same directory as the file for the command to work.

Try typing ls. You should have a folder labelled Desktop if you're in your home directory. Type cd Desktop or cd ~/Desktop. To make sure you're in the right directory, type ls and you should see your j2re-1_4_2-linux-1586-rpm.bin file.

Try posting the output of pwd. From the above output, I would guess you're in the directory /home/rob. You want to be in the directory /home/rob/Desktop.

Another thing you can do is just type the full path to the file you want to execute (but sooner or later you're going to have to learn to get around directories and stuff).

So to run the install script, try sh /home/rob/j2re-1_4_2-linux-i586-rpm.bin

look, you really need to search for how to do this. If you are having problems following these simple instructions you are in a lot of trouble.

# <- means at a prompt

#cd /home/rob/Desktop <enter>
#./j2r-1_4_2-linux-i586-rpm.bin <enter>

I also would encourage you to learn the "language of linux".

Try visiting http://www.tldp.org/LDP/intro-linux/...tro-linux.html
which is a good Newbie guide.
