Problems starting Azureus...

Hi yea I'm trying to execute Azureus and when I start it, it gives me this error message:
[nostrum@localhost azureus]$ ./azureus
Starting Azureus...
Java exec not found in PATH, starting auto-search...
ls: /usr/java: No such file or directory
OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /usr/java/ hierarchy
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.4.x or newer from
[nostrum@localhost azureus]$

A sub question is I went to and downloaded the Java Runtime Enviroment for teh linux platform but it comes in a .bin format. But it's an rpm? or so they say it is a xxx-rpm.bin is the last part of the file name (xxx being random stuff).

I just wanted to know hot to install the JRE and if I went and got the right file to make Azereus work.

Thanks in advance,

p.s. Thank you to all the knowledgeable and helpfull people out there that have answered my previous questions.
