If I'm not mistaken, the JAVA_HOME for Tiger (J2SE 5.0) seems to be automatically set in WinXP. So once you'd installed J2SE 5.0, start up a command prompt & type java -version to verify.

Welcome to the facinating Java World.

you should try to post to the "Java in General (beginner)" forum,
where you may have more feedback

To check whether JAVA_HOME is set, you have to use

if java -version returns the version, the ../bin directory might be in the path without %JAVA_HOME% being set.
If it doesn't return the version, %JAVA_HOME% might be set, but the path wasn't set to %JAVA_HOME%/bin.
