It's exactly the same. After downloading it, change the permission so you can execute it. Then just run it the way you would with the 32bit... After that, link the plugins for firefox to wherever you install java!

What exactly did you do? I have no idea when you said "no dice" because it's hard to figure out what was wrong when you wouldn't describe the steps.
