Problems installing J2EE on Solaris for Intel

I have been trying to install J2EE on my intel solaris box without much joy.
Firstly i do not know if there is a non sparc version of J2EE because the download only gives the sparc version as an option. Is there a version for intel?
if i down load the sparc version and run the .sh file it shows the licence and prompts me to enter yes to conmtinue. The script then says it is unpacking but fails with
like so
Do you agree to the above license terms? [yes or no]
./install.sfx.13277: syntax error at line 1: `(' unexpected
Does anybody know if a. i can get a version for intel solaris and if so what am i doing wrong. You would think that if sun went to the length of making solaris for intel they would port j2EE to it or am i wrong.
Thanks for any help in advance.

I prefer to work on LInux on Intel. What's the advantage of installing Solaris on Intel as opposed to Linux?

LOL - I like linux too. But .... when you D/L'd the file was it 'ftp'? Were you in 'binary' mode?
Highly amusing that Sun S/W won't load on Sun machines!

I am using Solaris for intel as a local test machine to replicate our remote solaris boxes.
There is no point in using lynux. I might as well just test on windows.

I am getting the very same error trying to install Java 1.4.1_01 JRE on a Solaris 8 machine. Was this issue ever resolved previously?
