Upgrading to Java 6

I'm running SuSE 9.3. A month ago I tried upgrading to java 6. At time I needed to be able to go back and forth between versions of java, so in the process I broke some links. I am now getting the very Microsoft Windows like error:

java: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I have now gone thru the Yast installation, but I'm getting the same error. All the links in alternatives still go to the old java version.

Is there any way to fix this? I have some programming packages to install that depend on java.

How are you installing java. I just download the jdk-6-*.bin from sun and extract (run) it in /usr/local then add the folder with "java" to my path.
