The java rpm doesn't set environment variables for you, you will have to set
the PATH and JAVA_HOME yourself
AFAIK the rpm automatically installs to /usr/java/jre1.3.1.02
so add /usr/java/jre1.3.1.02 to your PATH and
set JAVA_HOME to /usr/java/jre1.3.1.02
(I think that's the correct path anyway, i'm used to installing the sdk).
The best place to set these in mandrake is /etc/profile that way all users
will see the changes under all shells.
There already is a PATH= line in /etc/profile so just add extra path info
there. You will have to make a line yourself for JAVA_HOME= and below in
the list of export statements add export JAVA_HOME
