Probably your admin will feel more necouraged if you show him some of the
root shell expoits that have been found since them (no, I won't tell you
any). Debian 1.1 is pretty old.

This means it is using libc6, a new c library version. On a Debian 1.1
machine, this is probably not what you want. You can check the satisfaction
of libraries by issueing "ldd comman" where command is the executabel to
Probably you need a libc5 version of jdk, not glibc.

You do have the current directory in the path? You may want to check with
"which javac" if the correct java command is executed.

This means that the file does not exist. I don't have the tar ball here, but
maybe you can try to look at the i586 directory yourself and search a bit?

in your .bash_profile, add ":~/java/jdk1.1.5v5-930311/bin" to your PATH.

I hope I could point you in the right direction.

You can set LD_LIBRARYPATH (correct name?) to search for libraries in
