Limewire install problems

I am trying to install Limewire. This is what I enter:

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/bin

sh ./LimeWireLinux.bin

This is what is returned:

Preparing to install...
tail: `-1' option is obsolete; use `-n 1'
Try `tail --help' for more information.
./LimeWireLinux.bin: line 326: [: `)' expected, found -z
WARNING! The amount of /tmp disk space required and/or available
could not be determined. The installation will be attempted anyway.
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...

Launching installer...

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/zerog/lax/LAX

Any ideas?

This is what I did to get this running:

Java on linux can be a biznitch.

user@machine$ su
root@machine# pico /etc/profile

Add this line to the local path variable:

Test the install:
root@machine# source /etc/profile
root@machine# which java
java: /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/bin/java
Run the installer again
