Java SE 6 is only for 64-bit architectures (see About Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 2) which is, I guess, why you get 1.5 from the terminal and you get the "bad CPU" message when you try and run it directly.
If I open the Java preferences app, then it doesn't give me 6.0 as an option (only 5.0 and 1.42). Which is (I assume) why the java -version command shows 1.5 rather than 1.6.
If you want a 32-bit version, you could try SoyLatte (SoyLatte - Port of BSD Java). They have a 32-bit version of JDK. Not exactly sure of the origin of it, but seems to be a FreeBSD port and now rolled into OpenJDK.
I guess that once you download this you can do some clever stuff with symbolic links to make OSX think it's their version. Or maybe not. I guess it depends what you want to do.

I might have to play with that then. My need for 1.6 is because I have the Ubiquiti Airview2 which requires Java 1.6
Ubiquiti Networks, Inc. - Products
OS X/Dell Mini 9/Airview2 is a great combo for doing site maps
