running jive messenger on Mac OSX

Maybe this is better suited to the Mac OSX forum, but considering that I'm new at java, it may be that the solution here is more of a beginner java question.

I'm trying to run Jive Messenger on Mac. I've installed the JDK 5.0, but I keep getting these results when I try and run the "messenger" install script:

No suitable Java Virtual Machine could be found on your system.
The version of the JVM must be at least 1.5.
Please define INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME to point to a suitable JVM.
You can also try to delete the JVM cache file /Users/Brandon/.install4j


I've also tried using the "java messenger" command, to point it to the JVM, but then I get this classic line:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: messenger


any thoughts?

Bear,

Thanks again for the link. I tried it out this morning, but I'm still getting the same results.
