Help installing java on fedora core 6 gnome

I'm new to linux, I've been using Windows all my life. To view some of my favorite web content I need java runtime enviroment. But I dont know how to install anything except rpm files. When I try to open it it opens with emacs and I get the software information and the a bunch of simbols. By the way I'm using Fedora core 6 gnome.
