Try to grab a JDK from sun (java.sun.com) for your Linux dist. Normally it
will put the necessary binaries in the /usr/bin directory.
It is the easier way to do it.
Other thing you can do is to define where is your java executable and make a
"ln" (link) in your /usr/bin directory.
This was the way to correctly make my perl work with any script.

If everything fails look in the how tos at the java site or linux files
