JRE/Frostwire help

Hi, I am trying to use Frostwire (similar to Limewire) and when I try to run it I get the following message:
Quote:
Starting FrostWire...
Java exec found in PATH. Verifying...
OOPS, you don't seem to have a valid JRE. FrostWire works best with Sun JRE available at http://www.java.com
OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /usr/lib/ hierarchy
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.5.x or newer from http://www.java.com
ls: /usr/java/j*: No such file or directory
OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /usr/java/ hierarchy
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.5.x or newer from http://www.java.com
ls: /opt/j*: No such file or directory
OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /opt/ hierarchy
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.5.x or newer from http://www.java.com
Do I actually not have Java (I run Azureus fine, and it's based on Java), or are my paths not set correctly? I'm new to Linux so pardon me if any of these questions are stupid. And if it's not my paths, what should I serach for in yum to get the correct Java package. When I search 'Java' or 'JRE' I get a ridiculous amount of search matches and can't find one that looks like what I would need.

Thanks in advance!

Hello:
I believe you will need to install Sun's Java package and configure alternatives as well.
There is a guide here to assist you.
