Note that there's no such thing as "Linux 8". Various distributions have release numbers in that vicinity (RedHat, SuSE, Mandrake) but all of them use the Linux kernel version 2.4.
But in general, any Linux distribution using the 2.4 kernel should have no problems at all runnning Sun's JDK 1.4.

Absolutly. I run it on various flavors of Linux. It's easy to install. Just d-load it from Sun and run the install program. I make the group owner of the /usr/share/Java/JDK1.4/bin directory be a group called "java". I then make every user that needs to use the java programs a member of the java group.
Also, put that bin directory in your path and make an environment variable called JAVA_HOME that points to /usr/share/Java/JDK1.4/
That should do it.
