I had this problem. I'm using Fedora Core 4. I made a small online journal about my pursuits, here's the entry for this particular problem.
-------------------------------------------------------

Make a directory as the archive is not a compressed folder like most archives.

[mkommar@philter ~]$ mkdir OpenCascade
[mkommar@philter ~]$ cd OpenCascade

Now untar it:

[mkommar@philter OpenCascade]$ tar xvf OpenCASCADE_Linux.tgz

Now technically I should be able to just install the thing by running the install script:
[mkommar@philter OpenCascade]$ ./install.csh

However, I get this nonsense:
[mkommar@philter OpenCascade]$ ./install.csh
InstallShield Wizard

It dumps me back to the console in a hurry. If the wizard comes up for you, then you're doing better than I did. The solution you ask? Decompress the setup.jar file included in the package and have your way with it:

[mkommar@philter OpenCascade]$ cd Linux/
[mkommar@philter Linux]$ unzip setup.jar

Watch it inflate stuff.

You'll want to be root if you want to install:
[mkommar@philter Linux]$ su
Password:

Now the install wizard:

[root@philter Linux]# java run

If you tried to run "run.class" to begin with and it doesn't work, then view the contents of "run.inf" which contains:

START_CLASS: com.installshield.wizard.Wizard

You can then try and run the following:

[root@philter Linux]# java com.installshield.wizard.Wizard

There is another thread on this forum (dealing with this subject) that is much more concise than I am.

I am using Fedora Core too and I install java jdk1.5, but running java -jar setup.jar use java version 1.4.2 (default in Fedora Core4) and not 1.5.

Whithout unzip, I run setup, forcing use version 1.5:

# /usr/java/jdk1.5.0_05/bin/java -jar setup.jar

and works
