Which download are you looking at? This is the one I found:

"Linux AMD64 RPM in self-extracting file
(jre-1_5_0_03-linux-amd64-rpm.bin, 15.00 MB)"

As you see, they claim it's 15 MB and just to confirm, I downloaded it and confirmed that number:
He was looking at the development kit, i.e. jdk, while you were looking at the runtime environment, i.e jre, thus the size difference.

And for the original poster, AFAIK, the 64 bit java from SUN does not have a 64 bit java plugin for the 64 bit mozilla. I used the 64 bit 1.4.2 from Blackdown, which does.
