I'm not sure if it was entirely clear, but "JRE" means you need to
have a Java Runtime Environment (basically you need to have java) on
your linux machine.

I don't know if Red Hat has official packages for java. If not, you
can install Sun's java for linux from
http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html
You only need the Run Time (JRE) to run programs, and not the
Software Development Kit (SDK), which is a much bigger download.

There is another java implementation for linux, at
http://www.blackdown.org/

Both implementations are free-as-in-beer, but not free-as-in-liberty.
