oooo I like output...when you open the console you see:
type: ls (ell ess(not an i)) and verify you have a "bin" directory
If not type:
If it is there type:
cd bin ( no slash or you will be in the wrong "bin")
Leave the console open for now.
Click open your Home button and browse to:
and verify that you have j2re-1.4.2_06 folder
Click on that folder to get inside to the "bin" Click on bin.

Click and hold it and drag that baby to your /home/john/bin in the left pane.

If it spits out some info:
Usage: java [-options] class [args...]
(to execute a class)
or java [-options] -jar jarfile [args...]
(to execute a jar file)
