My computer is not letting me use the new SDK for Jaa 6 and I am using the Head First Java guide but i would like to try out some of the example early on. I have gone to the Java site and I still could not figure out how to get it working. Please Help.

Hi Cody,
I think there are a number of people out there who would love to help you with your problem, but you will need to provide this community with some more information about your problem. How to Ask Questions on JavaRanch

Regards,
TY.

Welcome to JavaRanch

When you look at the link Thomas Young provided, look particularly at this FAQ and this one.
Go through the Java Tutorials and follow the instructions given to the letter, depending which operating system you are using. Don't use NetBeans at this stage. Note the common problems page; if it tells you to set up your PATH, follow the instructions to set up your PATH permanently.

The Best you can do is install jdk 6.0 and jre

How to set the path??

Answer>> you basically right click my computers
2>advanced
3>Environment Variable
4>then in the user variables click new
5>then give variable name as path and value as
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_11\bin;

6> After these settings you should be able to run all java programs in Eclipse as well as notepad.

Agree with Yuvraj Kotegar, and thank you for your patience writing all the steps, but: you don't need the JRE; if you install the JDK the JRE is included. And after setting your PATH you may have to close your command line window and reopen it to see the PATH working.
