    Surely just download the .bin file for 64-bit, than chmod a+x and ./filename.bin and run it?

    Easier, it's in the non-free repositories (Debian FTW). You need to add non-free to your APT sources.list:

    example only -
    Code:
    http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian lenny main contrib non-free
    and then install sun-java6-jre.

  3. Thanks to powdarrmonkey from:

    You should find everything you need in /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/
