There's your answer, it should be in the repos. Limewire however, is very easy to install with Alien, its just not necessary.

The Ubuntu Wiki has an article that will tell you all about how to install Java:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java
As for Frostwire/Limewire/Anything else, I suggest you read this article:
How to install anything in Ubuntu
I know those say 'Ubuntu' but it should easily transfer to MEPIS. The only thing to note is that MEPIS may or may not use something other than Synaptic.

I highly recommend against trying to install the .rpm when you can just as easily get Frostwire/Limewire from the website or from the MEPIS repositories. It's built for Redhat-based systems, and could either not work or break your system.

Starting FrostWire...
Java exec found in PATH. Verifying...
OOPS, you don't seem to have a valid JRE. FrostWire works best with Sun JRE available at http://www.java.com
OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /usr/lib/ hierarchy
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.5.x or newer from http://www.java.com
ls: /usr/java/j*: No such file or directory
OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /usr/java/ hierarchy
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.5.x or newer from http://www.java.com
ls: /opt/j*: No such file or directory
OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /opt/ hierarchy
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.5.x or newer from http://www.java.com

Exactly, that's what I was saying. You want to use that as a last resort because it can be problematic.

Anyway, you've got Frostwire installed properly, but not the Java Runtime Environment. Do me a favor: in the console, type 'cat /etc/apt/sources.list' and paste the output here. And in the meantime, search for 'sun-java'.
