The most popular jdk for Linux is at 
which boasts stable versions to 1.1.8 and
a 1.2 beta.

However, IBM has recently announced its own
jdk for Linux with its own JIT optimization.
It is currently at 1.1.8 and plans to release
a 1.2 soon.

The install instructions are in the standard
README files
see a web page i made for a college course in java that i'm taking. it details the setup of java on a linux computer
please ask if you have any questions
yes, the linke which i posted more than five hours ago details the installation of blackdown linux with step by-step instructions
