I resolved the problem. I don't know if there is something messed up
with Fedora or something I did. The Java path was incorrectly set to
/usr/bin/java. Anyway, I found this URL which helped:

http://www.cs.brandeis.edu/~guru/java-notes.html

On the site where it tells you to run this commands, make sure you
replace the "sdk" to "re" since sdk is the development kit. So you
should run this from the /root directory:

for bash-
#echo 'export PATH="/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_06/bin/:${PATH}"' >> ~/.bashrc


for tcsh-
#echo 'setenv PATH "/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_06/bin/:\${PATH}"' >> ~/.cshrc

If you d/l Java directly from the home page at www.java.com it will work
perfectly with DVA without any other action. If you d/l from the DVA
page you'll have the problems as you describe. I found this out the
hard way.
