Still can't get this to work

I have downloaded the most recent JAVA package. j2re1.4.2_06 I am following all of the install instructions as posted, yet I cannot get this thing to install. Again, this does have to with the LimeWire install also. Please help.

Are you sure the java executable is at /usr/local/j2re*/java. Normally, it would be /usr/local/j2re*/bin/java.

Try and run the command
/usr/local/j2re*/bin/java --version
If this is successful, make the symbolic link:
ln -s /usr/local/j2re*/bin/java /usr/bin
When you have made the link, try typing "java" at a command prompt, and see what output you get. You should get a help message. Now you can install limewire.

I hope this helps
