Installing Limewire?

I just downloaded Limewire from the Limewire site, and downloaded the rpm for it, i double click it and it asks if i want to install it or save it... and so i click install and it comes up with this message

Some package requested cannot be installed:
LimeWire-free-4.8.1-0.i386 (due to unsatisfied j2re[>= 1.4.1])
do you agree ?
so i click on ok and thats it? so yea any help on that at all?
