Sorry, because you used those instructions there is NO easy way to update.
You need to redo *every* step.


You can undo all those steps and install the RPM.
There are guides on the web on how to install the Sun JRE RPM and
setup all the proper links.

Similar amount of work, but the RPM I think is easier.

Also, the Sun JRE is not included in the standard fedora YUM repositories.
