You can also simply install these rpms. No need to unpack and install
w/o package management.

There is a java 1.4.2 plugin for x86_64 from blackdown.

No, if you find trouble with firefox then just reinstall firefox using
the i386 rpms. Similar to other such issues like mythtv, mplayer etc.
Your updates are of course a bit less automated, as you would have to
take care of these (few) i386 packages manually (the smart/yum/apt way
would update them to x86_64).
