Ok, sorry for that.

I'am installing Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 on Red Hat Linux ES version 3, the problem is when we get to this:

Configuring Java Support

While other JREs are supported, the use of JRE is strongly recommended.
Choose option 1 to use the bundled JRE.

1. Use the bundled JRE .
2. Specify the path to an existing JRE.
3. Disable Java support.

if I choose option 1, this error appears:

Error: Unsupported JRE version detected ().
Press Enter to input another path.

if I choose #2 it tells me where is the bin of the java, this appears:

Enter the path to your JRE (type none to return to previous menu)
: [/usr/java]
Error: Unable to locate java binary in JRE path /usr/java.
Confirm that the 'java' binary is located in:

I can't find the latest version of java, and I call for support at, and nothing.
hope somebody can help me, thanks a lot
