to become root(superuser) all you have to do is to type
su
in the console and than it will prompt you for the password. Thats it.

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2/bin

there should be similar folders in your /usr/java/folder. Find them and do exactly what I did up there. Then you can try installing limewire by doing
./LimeWireLinux.bin

its all in my earlier post

theres something wrong with this command

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2/bin

make sure its correct path to your java commands. i suggest you reboot and type that command again and make sure it refers to YOUR java installation.
Good Luck

Yours should look like this one, again an example:

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2re1.4.2/bin, I cant tell you the exact command because I simply dont know where your java is installed. You find the directory and use my command as a guideline. Find out where in /usr java is installed and then look for bin subdirectory which should have java, javac, javadoc etc. this is the correct path you should export. I hope you get this right this time.
Good Luck

Okay, try this in console:
locate jre | more

this will give u a listing of where the jre folder is ON YOUR COMPUTER. There should be a bin folder INSIDE jre folder.
export PATH=$PATH:/your_path_to_jre_bin
and then ./LimeWireLinux.bin
