Question Java Installed incorrectly

I think I have installed Java incorrectly/the wrong version and I am not sure how to fix the problem. When I go to the Sun Java site and run their online test it tells me Java is not installed, however if I run "yum search jre" my system returns:

Loaded plugins: dellsysidplugin2, protectbase, refresh-packagekit
0 packages excluded due to repository protections
================================= Matched: jre =================================
jrefactory.i686 : JRe factory and Pretty Print
jre.i586 : Java(TM) Platform Standard Edition Runtime Environment
jss.i686 : Java Security Services (JSS)

Basically I think that the jre.i586 package is wrong and I need to replace it but I don't know how to do that. Any help I can get to fix this problem would be much appreciated.
