Question Problem getting PATH to go to Java VM

I have read all of the posts from people trying to help install Limewire on Fedora Core 1. It has a problem saying it cannot find a Java Virtual Machine in my PATH.

No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH
environment variable. You must install a VM prior to
running this program.

if you have already installed java vm, then it should be in

to set the path use code:

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_03/bin

If you haven't installed the jvm, download it from for the rpm
