Question Error when installing Java JRE


I was recently playing around with Java and it seems like the JRE wasn't installed correctly when I initially did that, so I decided to remove it and install the newest version. However, when I run ./jre-1_5_0_03-linux-i586.bin, I get the following error after a successful inflation of everything in the folder:

Creating jre1.5.0_03/lib/rt.jar
Creating jre1.5.0_03/lib/jsse.jar
Creating jre1.5.0_03/lib/charsets.jar
Creating jre1.5.0_03/lib/ext/localedata.jar
Creating jre1.5.0_03/lib/plugin.jar
Creating jre1.5.0_03/lib/javaws.jar
Creating jre1.5.0_03/lib/deploy.jar
dirname: too many arguments
Try `dirname --help' for more information.
dirname: too few arguments

I looked online for this error and found a solution, but it only applies to older versions of the JRE that were installed from source, and it seems like the only way to do it now is the .bin file. Any ideas on how to get around this?
