Java Virtual Machine

I trying to install LimeWire but everytime I try to install i it say "No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH environment variable. You must install a VM prior to running this program" But I already installed the Java VM. Anyone know how to fix this?

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_04/bin
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_04/jre/bin

Do that in a command line before you try to install LimeWire or put that in your /home/you/.bashrc profile (or the root profile). Obviously change the path if Java is in a different location.
