The problems are
a) he is adding the '.class' extension when trying to run the program. You have to specify the name of the class to run, not the name of the class file (so leave out the '.class')
b) he should specify the base path to the FPC rtl classes via the -cp parameter, as explained at http://wiki.freepascal.org/FPC_JVM/Usage#Running_compiled_programs

I've added a quick start example at http://wiki.freepascal.org/FPC_JVM#Quick_start
