Additional datapoint:
I have the Sun version installed via rpm.
rpm -q j2re
j2re-1.4.1-fcs

I was able to download the blackdown archive, unpack it, and copy the 
plugin to /usr/java/j2re1.4.1/plugin/i386/ns610/javaplugin_oji.so

I then removed the old symlink in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ and created a 
new one to the above file. Appears to work fine.
