	I'd recommend the J2SE from here: (Java on Linux isn't
	up to par, IMO). I use the! non-RPM bundle of netbeans and the
	and install it in /opt. You can update your path appropriately
	your Java applications to work.

Hi Christofer,

Many thanks for your prompt reply. I also installed J2SE in /opt
directory. However, when I run " java -version" command, I got the
information that about still having the old java (1.4.2) version
working, instead of the newest one. I became worried about the
possibility of messing up the configuration of FC4. Could you or anyone
alse, please, let me know how could I update my path appropriately for
my Java applications to work with the new Java version and its JVM?
Sorry, if that question s! eems to be too stupid, but, as I told before,
I have no experience with java, etc.

Thanks, once again!
