i'm new to linux. i have just installed yd linux on my b&w g3. i'm
trying to get a java environment up under linux and having no luck. i
have downloaded the jre and uncompressed the archive into /usr/local
creating a jre directory in /usr/local. when i try to excute a sample
java program, by

cd /usr/local/jre

jre Blink

i get a message saying jre can't be found. even thou it's right there in
that directory.

i think i missed basic setup steps somewhere...probably some standard
linux things??

any help would be appreciated.
