Solved. Going to answer my own question here in the hopes it might save
someone else the trouble....
1. Remove 64bit version of firefox
2. Install 32bit version of firefox
3. Install _ONLY_ 32bit java version (jre-1_5_0_14-linux-i586.bin and/or
4. Use 'alternatives' or manually symlink as you normally would
* Basically for step 3 ignore the sun documentation that states you must
install the amd/64 package additionally.

Agreed. I would love to use an oss version of java if possible.
Unfortunately some of the applets just don't work as expected -- be it
because the oss java isn't working right or the silly applets I am
using test for specific version numbers -- I don't much care. Clearly
its pretty ridiculous that sun has still not released a compatible
plugin at this point (see the 'bug' reports for the latest linux
plugin), but I digress... I have an i386 version of FC9 here that
works with this 32 bit version of the java plugin and these applets
work on it. Bottom line -- I want the same on 64 bit if possible. Is
there a way to have a 64bit FC9 os running while having the sun
branded java plugin working? I am willing to jump through as many
hoops as possible, assuming its not 'reinsall with i386'. Btw
nswrapper clearly states they do not support sun java.

Has anyone been able to get this to work on FC9 x64?
I have installed jre-6u6-linux-i586.bin, then overwrote various
from jre-6u6-linux-x64.bin. Then using yum I removed 64 bit firefox,
installed 32, and then linked
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins . I load up firefox, and i see it under
lugins. But no matter what java applet I try to use with
dumps on itself -- Am I missing some other required libraries here?
why not use java-1.6.0-openjdk provided with fedora? it works just
fine in 64bit firefox as a native 64bit plugin.
It doesn't work for popular sites like games.yahoo.com. I wish I could
figure out why... been trying to get it working since test3 of Fedora 8.
They transferred all plugin capability to nspluginwrapper on all archs
also, which of course doesn't even support java. I'm not entirely sure
why/how it even shows up in about
I guess I'm asking if anyone knows what magic is required for that all
to function, has anyone gotten java to work on games.yahoo.com with
