    There are instructions on the site, if you didn't notice. Not sure if the installation is different with Debian, though.

    Just posted that a few topics bellow:

    First download jre-1_5_0_04-linux-i586.bin(JRE 5.0 Update 4):

    As root:
    sh jre-1_5_0_04-linux-i586.bin
    mkdir /usr/java
    mv jre1.5.0_04/ /usr/java/
    chown -R root:root /usr/java/jre1.5.0_04/
    ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0_04/bin/java /usr/bin/java
    ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0_04/bin/java_vm /usr/bin/java_vm

    Edit /etc/bash.bashrc and add
    export JAVA_HOME
    export PATH
    Now type ...
    java -version
    ...and it should show:
    java version "1.5.0_04"
    Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_04-b05)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_04-b05, mixed mode, sharing)

    For Mozilla:
