azureus bittorrent client won't start, help plz!

when i go into the azureus directory and type in
it says

Attempting to start Azureus...
./azureus: line 52: java: command not found

but the thing is, i've already installed java from
and my other applications which require java works as well. but how come azureus cannot start?

one thing i've read on the main site is that:

"If you get an error message, or want to configure the java exec path, just open the azureus script file with your favorite text editor and edit the given configuration options."

now how exactly do i change that? how do i know where the path to java is?

Try running 'locate j2sdk1.4.2'. You should find the java executables in a path similar to this: /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2/bin/

Then just put the path that you find in line 4 of azureus. It goes right under the line where you put the full path to your azureus script. It's pretty well-commented, so it shouldn't be hard to figure out where to put the path.

If you installed java from downloading the java package from the sun site..your java bnaries should be in
Put this whole path in the azerus script and it should work.
