Easier said than done.
6) Now the installation of netbeans-5.0-beta2 goes fine, but the
installation of Sun's Application Server 8.1-2005Q2 will not install.
You have the option of not installing SJAS (there's even a NetBeans bundle that does
it). Then Download and install JBoss 4.0.3 which is supported by current Netbeans5 beta,
Netbeans to use it (Runtime Window > Servers > Add Server) and you'll have all
Java EE features.
If you won't use EJB and JMS you may well forget about SJAS or JBoss and just use the
Tomcat for JSP, Servlets and WebServices.
