Ok I got this problem solved, follow this steps:

1 - Erase any jmf.bin file that you had download. Download a new one and put in a folder, and check file size:

ls -l

This is a probably result:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 nobody nogroup 2419679 2009-03-07 11:52 jmf-2_1_1e-linux-i586.bin

filezise: 2419679 bytes

2 - Give permission to file:
chmod +x jmf-2_1_1e-linux-i586.bin

THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP
3 - Edit jmf-2_1_1e-linux-i586.bin downloaded file with vim as root
vim -b jmf-2_1_1e-linux-i586.bin (YOU HAVE TO USE THIS COMMAND -b BECAUSE IT'S A BINARY FILE)

4 - At vim type this:
/tail

Then press the key l to move to the left on that line, until the sign +.

Press i to insert text, and insert -n , with a space

5 - Now press ESC and type:
 :wq

6 - Now execute the jmf bin file.

That's it.
