You are mistaken, Oliver. You *do* need to put the jdk1.5.0-doc.zip
file in /tmp *if* you plan to install the sun-java5-doc package. The
documenation is not licensed for redistribution so the sun-java5-doc
package simply takes the zip file you have already downloaded and
"packages" it locally for installation with dpkg.
