Invalid Java Home on install of Weblogic

I’ve got an issue with installing Weblogic. I’m on RHEL 6, trying to install wls1036_generic.jar.
I’ve downloaded and installed jdk-6u43-linux-x64.bin. When I go to install weblogic I get to the section that allows you to choose your jdk, I point to the directory where I installed it and Weblogic gives me 'Invalid Java Home' error. I’ve removed the JDK tried it in another directory, same thing. I re-downloaded the jdk thinking maybe it was corrupt, still same error. I’ve exported the java home to the directory, still same thing.
I can run-

[oracle@blu common]$ cd jdk1.6.0_43/
[oracle@blu jdk1.6.0_43]$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_24"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.11.11) (rhel-
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.0-b12, mixed mode)

When I do a
[oracle@blu jdk1.6.0_43]$ which java
I get /usr/bin/java, so I added /u01/app/oracle/common/jdk1.6.0_43/bin to my path variables, still same thing.

When I export JAVA_HOME to /u01/app/oracle/common/jdk1.6.0_43
and add /u01/app/oracle/common/jdk1.6.0_43/bin to the path I get

[oracle@gil jdk1.6.0_43]$ which java
[oracle@gil jdk1.6.0_43]$ java -version
Error occurred during initialization of VM
java/lang/NoClassDefFoundError: java/lang/Object

Is this a Java Issue or a Weblogic issue? I would like to mention I have already installed Weblogic on this box, I screwed up an install of OAM and thought I’d restart.
When I tried to install Weblogic I received the Java Home error, and thought I’d start fresh. I grabbed a clean VM copy of RHEL, to my surprise I’m still getting the error.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

    Oh boy! It seems during my installation of Oracle I’ve gotten to use to unzip.
    I used-
    unzip jdk-6u45-linux-i586.bin
    instead of

    At what point do you say "screw it I need a vacation"? I would like to think that someone in this world will use this post, but I’m not thinking anyone is as stupid as this.
