yet another LimeWire / Java issue!

Hi all!! :-D
I'm running a freshly installed SuSE 9.1 Personal. I used:
apt-get install java (from uni-erlangen [dot] de's ftp), and it installed fine.
# whereis java
java: /etc/java /usr/lib/java /usr/share/java /usr/share/man/man1/java.1.gz

LimeWire tells me no VM is in my PATH, so where's the java executable for me to link?

Thanks in advance.

A little experimentation was all it took.
kinjiru:/etc/java # ls
. .. java2.conf java2-jre.conf README
kinjiru:/etc/java # cat java2-jre.conf | less
# Configuration for java2-jre package

Priority: 40

Vendor : Sun
Version : 1.4.2
Devel : False

JAVA_BINDIR = /usr/lib/SunJava2-1.4/jre/bin
JAVA_ROOT = /usr/lib/SunJava2-1.4
JAVA_HOME = /usr/lib/SunJava2-1.4/jre
JRE_HOME = /usr/lib/SunJava2-1.4/jre

JAVA_LINK = SunJava2-1.4
...etc, etc.

# export PATH=/usr/lib/SunJava2-1.4/jre:$PATH

Ja! The correct executable was located at JAVA_HOME. LimeWire works perfect now.
I initially tried to export JAVA_BINDIR (= binary directory?), but got a load of wierd error messages. I had to, as root,
# xauth merge /home/my_home/.Xauthority
# xhost + localhost
Then the installer ran, and viola.
