how to install JAI on RedHat Linux

Hi, I've been having problems wit installation of Java JAI on a Redhat 1.5 server.  I've installed various versions of JAVA JDK.
Cuurently, I've installed JDK1.6.0_14. (jdk-6u14-ea-bin-b04-linux-i586-01_apr_2009.bin).  This install is done into a folder - $HOME/local.

I CDed into this folder ($HOME/local/JDK1.6.0_14) made it executable by chmode u+x,
then ran the following:$HOME/Installkits/Java/jai-1_1_2-lib-linux-i586-jdk.bin

I keep getting the following error:
tail: cannot open `+245' for reading: No such file or directory

The download file appears to be corrupted.  Please refer
to the Troubleshooting section of the Installation
Instructions on the download page for more information.
Please do not attempt to install this archive file.

I've tried numerous copies of jai so I don't thisnk its a matter of corupt files.
I've tried jdk 1.5, 1.4 and j2sdk1.4 - all work but jai gives same message.
What am I doing wrong?

where did you download from, I'll have a look

have you tried running the install from the local directory and running it from there?
   cd $HOME/Installkits/Java/
   bash ./jai-1_1_2-lib-linux-i586-jdk.bin

I have downloaded JAI from several differnt sources just to rule out a corupted download,  
I also need to install it into a specific directory such as the JDK.
