in terminal, either give the full path like

or, if you're in the directory the file is in, simply

and that's it the program takes care of the rest

EDIT: of course use LimeWireLinux.bin as the name of the file...not the file.bin I tried limewire too, but got bored as it was so damn slow and didn't work out well...connections just kept breaking if I even got them started

basically every java-stuff you'll ever need can be found somewhere in so you might want to check that place...

in the website there's a link called Java VM which takes you here:

so click the link above & go find what you need

I just went through this,
Try chmod 755 LimeWireLinux.bin
to make it executable

You have to include /usr/java/j2reversionnumber/bin to your path in .bash_profile

Edit .bash_profile as root.
at the end of the path statement put a ://usr/java/j2reversionnumber/bin
I did mine as a user and it was installed in my home directory so it was :/home/john/java/jre1.2.4_03/bin (there are no spaces between the existing path statement and the : and the path to jre)

After that create symbolic links to the java executables in /usr/bin

# cd /usr/bin
# ln -s /usr/java/j2reversionnumber/bin/* /usr/bin

It should work now, to check

# su to normal user
$ which java

You should get something like

[user@localhost user]$ which java
LimeWire created a runLimeWire script in my home directory, and that will launch it, but read the README file.
if you are having trouble finding all this stuff after installing JRE and LimeWire, try su to root, run updatedb then type locate LimeWire after it is done updating your file database. same thing for JRE
Now if anyone here wants to tell me how to get gtk-gnutella working (evidentally I don't have but I hesitate to upgrade the whole package as maybe some of my other dependencies will no longer work?) I don't know, kind of a newbie still...
