Congrads on reading the manual, but how about following it.  There is a
reason MS does not name their program 'java'--it's not.  Go get JDK1.2.2
from Sun.  Install it.  You will then have a 'java' implementation, and the
program will run.  Make a batch file for setting the CLASSPATH.  You aren't
expected to type these things again and again.

If make some changes to the source and recompile against the MS class
libaries you would be able to use jview.  That is not what you want to do.
