I have a fairly old powerbook that can't quite take the Tiger upgrade that would alow me to use the 1.5 JVM. The linux lab at my school runs an open-source JVM caled blackdown, and I'm wondering if anyone's heard anything about running a third-party java 1.5 compatible JVM on OSX 10.3.x

See Kathy's tip from a "little bird" in this thread.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
