Right, well I just tried to install it from the rpm on a RH 7.0 and the 
install goes through okay but then:

[root@wesley bin]# pwd
[root@wesley bin]# ./java
Error: failed /usr/java/j2re1.4.0_02/lib/i386/client/libjvm.so, because 
libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or 

Right, so what do I have:
[root@wesley bin]# locate libstdc++-libc

It's looking for an older version.  A quick google for that version 
indicates that it might have been installed on RH 6.2.  If I feel the need 
to use java I might try and sort that out at some point.

Can you find java in /usr/java? or not at all?  It does seem to have 
issues with RedHat 7.0 but it might not be the same as what you are
