Installing Java, but fakeroot not working


I'm trying to install Java, and I read how to do it, but everytime I try, I get this:

> fakeroot make-jpkg jre-6u15-linux-i586.bin
>/usr/bin/fakeroot: line 164: make-jpkg: command not found

How do I fix this? Is their a .deb for debian (lenny) from Sun-Java?

to manually install copy jre-6u15-linux-i586.bin to /usr
as root do the following
Code:
cd /usr
./jre-6u15-linux-i586.bin
ln sf /usr/jre1.6.0_15/bin/java /usr/bin/java
have to agree to sun-java terms

Now I get this:

ln: target `/usr/bin/java' is not a directory


What do I do now?
