rpm -Uvh jre-1_5_0_05-linux-i586.rpm

that'll upgrade where necessary, install otherwise, and give you visual
cues as to the progress.  And no, when using rpm, it doesn't matter
where the rpm file is.  When installing stuff from rpm and not using
package management - which since all my rpm based kit is running CentOS,
means up2date - I usually create an rpms directory in root's home
directory, and chuck them there.
