You are mistaken, Oliver.  You *do* need to put the
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.
