download the JDK Standard Edition Version 1.4 from java.sun.com. follow the installation instructions.
(and the instructions on how to setup the classpath!)
go to the directory where you placed the sample file (on linux: console/xterm, on windows: dos/commandline)
type:
$ javac JButtons.java
this will compile the file and create JButtons.class if successfull.
to run the example type:
$ java JButtons
remember to leave the class-ext off.
if you run into problems, post again.
