I went and did the 
sudo apt-get install j2re1.4
command but it gave me this...
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Package j2re1.4 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package j2re1.4 has no installation candidate
  plus when I do $ java -version  I get:
java version "1.5.0_03"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_03-b07)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_03-b07, mixed mode, sharing)
  which means I have the newest version installed.  This is what I
thought all along, but for some reason synaptic doesnt see this and wont
let me get Azureus because of depend.  with it.  Am I good with this
java package to just go ahead and install Azureus from their website?
And do I need to install it in a certain folder etc to make sure it
works with java?  Thanks,
