btw, have you set the X-flag to be able to run the file? Type this:

chmod a+x jdk-6u21-linux-x64.bin
./jdk-6u21-linux-x64.bin

My third post should work:

chmod a+x jdk-6u21-linux-x64.bin
./jdk-6u21-linux-x64.bin

But here's a guide: http://kmaiti.blogspot.com/2010/07/how-to-install-jdk16021-on-64-bit-linux.html

There are more steps after the two I wrote above.

'su' is the command to get root access. If you're a user you have a $ in the terminal. If you're root you'll have a # in the terminal.

To use 'su' just type su in a terminal window and enter your password.

In a terminal, can you type

chmod a+x /usr/local/jdk

and then press TAB (not enter). If you have the file in that directory your shell will complete the file name for you. Press TAB twice to list several names (if you have several matches).
