Question Limewire

In the past i was using fedora core 3 but my linux hard drive died. someone where i work had suggested to me to use whitebox. so ne way i had lime wire working just fine by just installing the latest version of jre before, but now that im using whitebox i go o open lime wire from a terminal and this the message it gives me.... "Starting LimeWire...
Java exec found in PATH. Verifying...
Suitable java version found [java = 1.4.2]
Configuring environment...
Loading LimeWire:file:///usr/share/doc/HTML/index.html
Warning: -jar not understood. Ignoring.

at _Jv_RegisterClasses (/usr/lib/LimeWire/java.version=1.4.2)

Something went wrong with LimeWire.
Maybe you're using the wrong version of Java?
(LimeWire is tested against and works best with with Sun's JRE, Java 1.4+)
The version of Java in your PATH is:
java version "1.4.2"
gcj (GCC) 3.4.3 20041212 (Red Hat 3.4.3-9.EL4)
Copyright (C) 2004 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
This is free software; see the source for copying conditions. There is NO

Im not sure why the path is pointing to an older version of java than what i have. Can neone help me with this?
