LimeWire Installation Problems- No Java virtual machine could be found...

[---@localhost Other]$ sh ./LimeWireLinux.bin
Preparing to install...
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH
environment variable. You must install a VM prior to
running this program.

I think I need this

Which one do I download though, the RPM or the other one? I'm using Mandrake 10.

And can anyone help me with whichever one I download? I have no idea how to install it.

You can install the JRE via the j2re-1_4_2_06-Linux-i586.bin

.. and as an example - one way to install it: (assuming you've downloaded it to your home directory and have become root user in an xterm)

cp /home/username/j2re-1_4_2_06-Linux-i586.bin /usr/local/bin

cd /usr/local/bin

chmod +x j2re-1_4_2_06-Linux-i586.bin


kedit /home/username/.bash_profile

I did exactly that and I still can't install Limewire.
My echo $PATH gives this:
/usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin :/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_06/bin:/home/marius/bin:
When I run the installer I get this:
Preparing to install...
tail: `-1' option is obsolete; use `-n 1'
Try `tail --help' for more information.
LimeWireLinux-1.bin: line 326: [: `)' expected, found -z
WARNING! The amount of /tmp disk space required and/or available

Unable to locate the application's 'main' class. The class 'com.zerog.ia.installer.Main' must be public and have a 'public static void main(String[])' method. (LAX)
It does not say it cannot find java. Something else must be wrong.
Any ideas?
