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.
