I looked in Add/Remove programs and found it there but it says it's incompatible with PPC. I looked all over Google and found some guides but none of them work. I really need Java so I can get Limewire working.

In powerPC? .... You should use the open soruce java machines or the IBM java machine for powerPC.

For example, I've an IBM iSeries in my job with Suse 10 on PowerPC CPU, the only way I've found to run JBOSS (a java application server) was with the IBM Java Machine.

I believe I have had the best luck enabling the Medibuntu repository and installing the IBM java. It still seems to lack something compared to !386 java.
