It seems like you have atleast two versions of java installed (the sun
version you downloaded and the jdkgcj version). And, your
environment variables are pointing to a nonstandard/old version of java
To fix this, you need to update your PATH variable to point to the
Sun java install. Typically, this is installed in /usr/share/bin or
/usr/bin/java. Once you update your PATH variable to point to the
correct java version, "java -version" will return:
java version "1.4.0_01"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0_01-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0_01-b03, mixed mode)
If you have difficulties, email me (off-list) and I'll try and help.
