try
Code:
sh name.of.file
or
Code:
./name.of.file
once you've done
Code:
cd name.of.directory.the.file.is.in

Code:
su
Password:
chmod +x j2re-1_4_2_<version>-linux-i586.bin
cd /path/to/java/bin/file/
./j2re-1_4_2_<version>-linux-i586.bin
This will do the following:
-become root;
-set execute permissions on the binary file;
-go to the directory where the binary file is;
-run the binary installer.

Check out the installation instructions from the Java homepage:
Java 2 Runtime Environment
Java 2 SDK

Good luck!
