Angry I am so stupid!

Okay I went to that website. Got both programs. They are just sitting
in my home file looking at me as I can not figure out how to install
them. Yes, there are directions...it says to Run the j2sdk-1_4_0-
linux-i386-rpm.bin..by using the following commands....in the directory
where it is located...okay i ran there chmod...in a terminal window..
yep just guessing..well it said something couldn't be located but up
popped this agreement i have to agree to before i can install well
geesh I got to see the program codes for answering yes or no but
no way to actually answer...So how do I "run" and run from the directory
in which it is located is even worse...I have tried for over 6 hrs now..
to put it plainly I am not smart enough to set linux up to play a dumb
game of canasta at yahoo!

Oh yell!

I finally decided the heck with konqueror for now I would go and get Mozilla.
Yell well it's tarred. Back to square one as I have no idea how to do this either.

Try this

Sitting in home dir. go to window on task bar and click on "show terminal emulator"
type gunzip *filename* hit enter
type tar vxf *filename* hit enter
open mozilla installer folder and click on the mozilla-installer icon.
Then rock and roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When all else fails dump that crappy 8.2 and get 8.1
