Hi Rick.

That command returns:

# java -version
java version "1.4.1"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.1-b21)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.1-b21, mixed mode)

so root is definitely using java 1.4.1 as its java.  In fact java 1.3.1
is not installed on that machine.

How is it doing the dependency checks?  Somehow it is not detecting the
1.4.1.  Is there anything I can do to make it do that?

I would much prefer to use the ready-made RPMs.  That way when a new one
comes out I can quickly just install it.  I'm sure there's just some
very minor tweak that I need to do to get it to detect the right version
of java.  Is there a way to force the rpm to install without checking? 
I know that 1.4.1 is there and has all the stuff it needs.

Thanks for any suggestions.
