      Description

      Problems with installation JRE 1.4.2 and 5.0 under Suse 10.0 linux.

      In the documentation (http://jscpreview.sfbay/j2se/1.4.2/jre/install-linux.html) is
      told that:

      *RPM Packages* - A rpm.bin file containing RPM packages, installed
      with the rpm utility. Requires root access to install, and
      installs by default in a location that *replaces the system
      version of the Java platform* supplied by Linux. To use this
      bundle, see ....


      But after installation jre the command java -version gives out old
      system version JRE.

      Tested on decency.russia.sun(Suse 10), stt-04.russia.sun.com(Suse 9.3) and stt-29.russia.sun.com (Suse 10).
       
      This is my log.
