To be honest, I still have to install Sun's JVM on a Debian box but I ran
into this same issue when installing it on Red Hat or Fedora systems in the
past too.  Make sure you add the Java binary to your PATH environment 
variable or the Java applications will not find it.  I added the following
to my "~/.bash_profile":

export JAVA_HOMEDIR="/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.1_02"
