Angry finding java path?

im a linux and im having some probs, i installed java because it told me i needed to have to to install that it is installed and i try to install limewire with the commands cd /home/Adam/Documents then chmod 755 LimeWireLinux.bin then ./LimeWireLinux.bin and i get the message Preparing to install...
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH
environment variable. You must install a VM prior to
running this program. so i did some checking and i found my java is installed in root/usr/java and it is version j2re1.4.1! would someone please explain to me in the simpilist of terms how to fix that problem, the only shell commands i know is what i have saw by looking trying to fix that, so please tell me EXACTLY what ineed to type to fix this thanks!
