Description of problem: Sun Java jre-1.5 fails to run after install 
on RHEL4WS.  I have attempted to open .jnlp files through the firefox 
browser with no success, I have also attempted to open javaws from 
the terminal window using /usr/java/jre1.5.0_01/javaws/javaws.  Java 
webstart fails to open.  I have also checked permissions to ensure 
that the javaws file is executable.

There seems to be a problem with javaws on RHEL4.  I suspect all the
vendors use the same javaws binary, since both BEA and IBM's javaws
binaries also fail on startup.  I've reported this to IBM.  I'll mark
this bug report as a duplicate.
