I had the exact problem, and I managed to solve it using your previous post!
So I hope I can help you out in return :-)

I downloaded the "jdk-6-doc.zip" file using the link on the other post:http://www.filewatcher.com/m/jdk-6-doc.zip.54898268.0.0.html

...to my desktop, just to make it easier.

Go into your terminal and get into your Desktop folder

then type:

cp jdk-6-doc.zip /tmp
sudo chown root:root /tmp/jdk-6-doc.zip

You might want to navigate around a bit in between, getting into the correct folder, but that's essentially it. I know I've only repeated what "partyboi2" said, so any credit should go to him, but you didn't seem to understand what to do with the file. You just do that :-)
