NetBeans Installation

If you like to build Java application, then you will mostly like Netbeans. Well, there are Eclipse, but some people prefer to use Netbeans. So here's the installation process:
1. Grab Netbeans from the site
2. Make sure you have JDK 1.5.0_06 and above (recommended 1.6.0 and above)
Optional: Add new environment variable, called JAVA_HOME and point it to the Java installation path
3. Switch to root user
4. Add execute permission (chmod +x netbeans-5_5_1-linux.bin)
5. Run the installer (./netbeans-5_5_1-linux.bin)
6. You will have Netbeans installed on your computer.

Here's a screenshot during installation process:
