It's not supported by Apple, but here's what was posted on another site. The user name is the same as yours, but since you're asking I'm presuming that it wasn't you. Note that I'm quoting; I haven't tried it myself; as with any such hack, unexpected consequences may arise:

1. Install Java 1.4.2 as outlined in this link:
Alternatively, extract Java 1.4.2 from the Java For Mac OS X 10.5 Update 4 installation package, and install it in a similar manner:
2. Make sure that Java 1.4.2 is the first 32-bit application in the list. Under Java Preferences, my list reads:
Java SE 6 64-bit
J2SE 1.4.2 32-bit
Java SE 6 32-bit
3. Open Safari in 32-bit mode via the Get Info window for Safari. This is where I was getting screwed up. It finally occurred to me that Java 1.4.2 is a 32-bit application, but if Safari was opening in 64-bit mode, it wouldn't use the 32-bit Java apps.
Once I opened Safari in 32-bit mode, Safari was able to use Java 1.4.2.
Hope that helps.
