Java SDK in Fedora Core 3 (64 bit)

Ok, I'm running on an AMD 64 so to install the java sdk I downloaded j2sdk-1_4_2_06-linux-ia64-rpm.bin. Next, I followed the instuctions located here:

This is what my terminal looked like:

[uphu@localhost ~]$ chmod a+x j2sdk-1_4_2_06-linux-ia64-rpm.bin
[uphu@localhost ~]$ ./j2sdk-1_4_2_06-linux-ia64-rpm.bin
              Sun Microsystems, Inc.
          Binary Code License Agreement
[agreement here, blah blah blah]
Do you agree to the above license terms? [yes or no]
./j2sdk-1_4_2_06-linux-ia64-rpm.bin: line 370: ./install.sfx.3913: cannot execute binary file
[uphu@localhost ~]$
So any ideas whats wrong?

do it as root as in you login as a super user. do

su -
it will ask for you root password, after that you prompt will turn to "#" instead of "$". And then try installing JDK again.

Use this as a reference:

Might be a permissions probelem

I had this problem and it was a permissions problem. After I solved the permissions problem, I still had the same error.
The second time it turned out to be that I had the i386 .bin archive file instead of the amd64 .bin file. I was installing remotely on an AMD Opteron 64-bit SMP server (and didn't know it at the time). :-)
I fetched the correct version from the web site and it all deflated perfectly.

Well, its funny because I'm running on an AMD 64 but I cannot install the ia64 while I can, and have in the past, installed i586. The problem then was that I couldn't install bluej. It was a .jar and I typed

java -jar bluej*.jar
...and there was some error.

when you say the the amd64 .bin file you mean is64 .bin, right?

Edit: Nevermind I got it all working. I installed the wrong one. Apparently they don't have a 1.4.2 for AMD 64's so I had to get JDK 1.5.0 for AMD 64
