I do not know if your problem is similar to my problem with 
www.elluminate.com.  Please see the thread with subject:
"Does Iced Tea Web Start work on Fedora 10? What about Fedora 11?"

I found I could install the 32-bit Sun JRE, jre-6u14-linux-i586.bin,
from Sun.com.  I could tell Firefox to use the javaws binary
after doing this install, to run the stuff at www.elluminate.com.

Similarly, I found I could get Java Web Start to download the 
EVOPlayer when I told Firefox to use the javaws binary from 

The EVOPlayer started running, at which point I stopped it
as I probably am not authorized to go any further with it.

Please note: I am Fedora 10, X86_64, 
uname -r
I do not know if I would see the same results on Fedora 11 
as I see on Fedora 10.

Is it proper etiquette for a person to reply to this mailing list
and Cc a particular person?  

If it is proper etiquette, I'd suggest you ask Deepak Bhole.  
From his answers to my question, I think he is involved in this code.
