Thanks to all the folks that have responded. The critical application I
use is sslexplorer to access my company's internal network and that only
works with Sun's java. I tried using the open-jdk with the icetea
plugin and firefox sees it ok, but when I try to access Sun's java test
page http://www.java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml or sslexplorer I
get applet not initialized error. It looks like the only route that
will work is to use 32 bit PAE kernel.
