The problem with developers writing documentation is that they are so used to knowing how it is supposed to work that they read things between the lines that just aren't there.  After having this fact pounded into my head various documentors specifically assigned to convert my technical ramblings into English suitable for consumption by people who don't have my insight into the application, I came to greatly respect documentors (or product information specialists, as they are know at my company) and the service they provide to turn code into a product.

But enough for my ramblings. On to your problem.

First, you are almost there.  You have a capable JVM from Sun, I hope. (You didn't include the entire output from running 'java -version', and I would have been happier to see a '-b05' suffix on the version you posted. I'm not sitting at my Linux box, it's at work by I am at home, so I can't verify it at this time.)  I assume you have set JAVA_HOME to the location where the JMV is installed.

You also downloaded the jboss zip file and extracted the jboss-4.0.4.GA directory.  Once again, you did not say where you placed this directory. I could assume your home directory. That is fine. I usually place it at /opt/jboss-4.0.4.GA.  The place doesn't matter, really. Anywhere you like that makes sense to you is fine.  Hence, a "suitable location."

Only one thing left to do. Run it.  There is a bin directory under jboss-4.0.4.GA. Go to that directory and enter:

chmod 755 *.sh
  | ./run.sh

Now open your browser and enter the URL http://localhost:8080. You should see the JBoss Home page.
