Here's what I did on F8rc3 Live, it should work for you but please 
post back if it doesn't.

How to get Sun's Java running on F8rc3

As root  -

1) Download the Sun Java Linux RPM from and install it.

2) Fix the Xinerama bug with

	sed -i 's/XINERAMA/FAKEEXTN/g' 

	Save a copy if you want to restore it to original.

3) Put the link to

	/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_03/jre/plugin/i386/ into


4) Install compat-libstdc++-33

5) Remove nspluginwrapper

Now you should be able to compile and run Java applications, run Java 
Applets in Firefox and load and run Java Web Start programs.
