Thanks Charles

I've installed Sun's jdk and pointed the path as you recommended, but the
install program jut ignored it. It kept asking where java is installed, and
when pointed to /usr/lib/jvm/java-
> 6-sun-  or to usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-
> it did not accept it.
I am not sure about which java is installed by default in Debian, as there
appears to be more than one (gcj, eclipse and now sun's jre and jdk).
Is there anything else that may be done to install Jemboss?
