Newbie needs help Installing j2sdk-1_4_2-nb_3_5_1-bin-linux.bin
I'm totally new to linux, defecting from the microsoft platform. I have just downloaded
j2sdk-1_4_2-nb_3_5_1-bin-linux.bin from the sun website, and would like toinstall it on my redhat 9 sytem. This installation includes the latest jdk and the latest netbeans ide.
i tried runing the command ./<filename> which i found from google, but with no success.
I would really appreciate it if anyone coul dpoint me in the right direction! I know basic commands for unzipping, and zipping files, and i know rpm is a command for installing rpm files, but i haven't the slightest idea of where to start with .bin files.
Thanks in advance,
