The result:

steven at Studio25:~/Desktop$ chmod a+x jre-6u11-linux-586.bin
chmod: cannot access `jre-6u11-linux-586.bin': No such file or directory

Dear Donn,

Would this be the result I should get, if I already have the package installed.  A gentleman named John provided the solution to the problem only to also find out that this package I have been working so hard to install is already in my computer.  I am the fool I appear to be, although, after wasting so many peoples' valuable time, I am committed to learn how to do the process so that I will never again waste so many peoples' time when I actually have a problem installing a .bin.

I was in the process of getting help from my ISP on another problem when they stopped me and instructed that I was missing this package and sent me to a download site to get it.  I supposedly had to have it before they would proceed to the next step in help.  I made the foolish assumption that they knew I did not have the package, otherwise why would the subject have come up.  Any that is my reason, not my excuse for wasting your time.

If you choose to continue to help, I appreciate it; if not, I understand.
