It SEEMs that jpackage has a java JDK that I can use?

It is 1.5.0 and the Centos instructions 
recommend 1.4.2, but oh well.

So do I put in 2 yum repros in /etc/yum.repos.d?


is currently in there.

Can I add:


and install their gpg key?

then:  yum install java-1.5.0-sun-compat     ???

After that, a yum update would first hit the Centos site for updates, 
then the jpackage?
