Need Java Help. (running Linspire 5.0)


Ok. I have been running Linspire for a few days now after being a longtime Microsoft Windows user. I love the features and think it's great, but I'm having issues with Java/Flash. For example. I like to play Acrophobia which can be found on uproar.com. When I go to play, it takes forever to load and then often times, the frame with the game disappears after a couple of moments causing total and utter frustration. I thought, ok, maybe if I update to the newest Java console, I should be able to play without crashing. I went to java and downloaded thier update. I clicked on it and it does nothing but open a word pad style frame and it doesn't actually install. I'm not an idiot, so I decided, ok, let's find a tutorial. I went and searched and the instructions to install may as well have been in German. I admit and accept all total n00b flames I may get, but I would appreciate anyone's assistance on this. I downloaded the install file to the My Programs folder. The name of the file (if this helps) is jre-1_5_0_05-linux-i586.bin

Again, If I'm not even doing the right thing, please let me know. If this helps also, my machine specs are as follows: 40 GB HD, 1.3GHz AMD Duron, 375MBs of RAM, Linspire 5.0.

If you need anymore information, let me know.

Thanks,
LinuxNo0bie

Run the program from the commandline.
cd to the folder and then run:

./jre-1_5_0_05-linux-i586.bin
