chmod is a tool used for changinf file permissions... to install the rpm you need....

[root pass]
rpm -Uvh /path/to/hava.rpm

that will install java to /usr/java/jre2/

now, you need to add it to your path variable.

open $HOME/.bash_profile

you will see a line that sets the variable $PATH. add java's bin folder to it.

then java will be installed.
