openjdk6 is available from Fedora 9 - but as their wiki page says:

"Sun has licensed the OpenJDK trademark for use in Fedora."

<http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/Beats/Java>

So I'm not sure if that one can be used without problems. And it is not
"Java compatible" yet (probably meaning that it hasn't been certified by
Sun).

Cheers,

Ralph
