LimeWire Installation Problems- No Java virtual machine could be found...

No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH

running this program.

I think I need this http://www.java.com/en/download/linux_manual.jsp

Which one do I download though, the RPM or the other one? I'm using Mandrake 10.

And can anyone help me with whichever one I download? I have no idea how to install it.

You can install the JRE via the j2re-1_4_2_06-Linux-i586.bin

.. and as an example - one way to install it: (assuming you've downloaded it to your home directory and have become root user in an xterm)

cp /home/username/j2re-1_4_2_06-Linux-i586.bin /usr/local/bin

cd /usr/local/bin

chmod +x j2re-1_4_2_06-Linux-i586.bin

./j2re-1_4_2_06-Linux-i586.bin

kedit /home/username/.bash_profile

modify:

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:

to

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:/usr/local/bin/j2re1.4.2_06/bin

I did exactly that and I still can't install Limewire.
My echo $PATH gives this:
/usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin :/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_06/bin:/home/marius/bin:
When I run the installer I get this:
Preparing to install...

It does not say it cannot find java. Something else must be wrong.
Any ideas?
