IntelliJ IDEA/InstallAnywhere programs/Java

I'm trying to install IntelliJ IDEA ( I installed JDK 1.4.2 from Sun's RPM--which did not finish installing completely with a couple pixels left in the progress bar at which point it just stopped running. However, I can compile and run a Hello World Java program, and Eclipse runs correctly.

However, trying to install IDEA--with a complete lack of Linux installation instructions, might I add--I always get the error message:
Exception in thread "main"
...with no stack trace. I am running the installer via:
java install
...because there is an install.class. In IDEA 3, the InstallAnywhere splash screen loads and the progress bar gets 3/4 done until the exception and the program freezes. In IDEA 4, the only output--and no GUI produced--is:
FileEncoding::initialize()- platform default encoding: UTF-8
FileEncoding::initialize()- using encoding:            UTF-8
Exception in thread "main"
I'm using Fedora. I'm not logged in as root and the files are in my home directory under some other subdirectories.

Any help would be greatly appreciated because I've become so addicted to the excellent IDEA IDE
