I am not really sure how to solve your problem but I installed jdk 1_5_0_11 (the latest update to 1.5) the other day, I went about it a different way that works:

Instead of downloading the "Linux RPM in self extracting file" - the .rpm.bin, download the "Linux self extracting file" - the .bin

Execute it using ./jdk-1_5_0_11-linux-i586.bin
Then type yes to accept the liscence agreement

Then as root:
mv -f jdk1.5* /opt/jdk1.5
where "jdk1.5*" is the folder it has just created

Then, if you want to use Sun's java rather than GNU java...
/usr/sbin/alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /opt/jdk1.5/bin/java 2
echo 2 | sudo /usr/sbin/alternatives --config java

Then run java -version and this should say you are using the version you have just installed

N.B you will need to do a similar thing for functions such as javac if you are wanting to use those...e.g. /usr/sbin/alternatives --install /usr/bin/javac javac /opt/jdk1.5/bin/javac 2

That way might not be the best way, but it has worked for me

well thanks for the reply ,.....
but i found out later that i was actually extracting the file from the DVD itself , so i had the permissions problem , .... i have figured that out now ,...... but u know , i had tried to install JDK solely for NETBEANS and that does not work on FC6 bcos , netbeans has some problem with COMPIZ , the default window manager with FC6, so i rather shifted to UBUNTU , and i have now succesfully installed both JDK6 and NETBEANS 5.5 !

hey do u have any idea wheer EMACS can be obtained for UBUNTU ??????

from GUI:
go to system > Synaptic Package manager > then search from emacs

from shell:
go to application > Accesssories > Terminal
sudo apt-get install emacs

I've found a solution

Being a part of linux community I feel obliged to share with you the solution I have discovered. I have solved my headache with below (quote):

No; bash *IS* sh, for all practical purposes. When invoked as "sh" instead
of "bash" it restricts itself to behaving like sh.

Now, how are you trying to run the installer? Are you doing something
like "./" or are you explicitly telling sh to run it,
e.g. "sh ./"?
