No, that isn't true at all...

Under both Fedora 12 and RHEL 5.4 I am using the 64 bit JDK...  To get the 
Java plugin working, all I had to do -with the Sun JDK- was

cd /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins
ln -s /usr/java/latest/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so

And restart Firefox...

Of course, in this instance /usr/java/latest is a sym link to 
/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_16

It works just fine for me...  I'm sure I'd have similar results on CentOS 
:)
