You'll want the following version:

Linux
AMD64/EM64T
64-bit mode

unless for some reason you're running 32-bit mode, in which case take the 32-bit EM64T version.

It depends whether you want the development kit, or just the runtime.  Since your running redhat, I'd assume the rpm would be the easier way to go...
Starting from the link you posted above, take your pick:

JDK 5.0 Update 14
jdk-1_5_0_14-linux-amd64-rpm.bin

Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 14
jre-1_5_0_14-linux-amd64-rpm.bin

Thank you for your time. It's been a nightmare Googling trying to see if this file works with intel processors.
Sun's website is not very forth comming on information
