We haven't covered any ground before Craig.
The document is not a step by step tutorial for the totally
uninformed. It is a minimal set of instructions to get Sun's Java
installed on both i386 and x86_64 and to get them to work. I don't
know what Karl's command line problem is but it does work just fine
for me. Part of his problem was that he removed icedtea and didn't
have a clue about the alternatives program.
