Just do apt-get install sun-java5-jre
If you want the plugin for firefox do apt-get install sun-java5-plugin

Why does he need backports or experimental?? It's in non-free.

Code:
sun-java5-jre:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 1.5.0-14-1etch1
  Version table:
     1.5.0-14-1etch1 0
        650 http://debian.lcs.mit.edu etch/non-free Packages

Why would you install 1.5? 1.6 has many performance improvements, not to mention the 64 bit plug-in.

Debian Etch

Edit: ok, sun-java6-jre is available for Etch if you enable etch-backports.
