Connect 32-bit Network Connect client on 64-bit RHEL6/Springdale6/Centos6/Fedora

Installing the 32-bit Network Connect client on a 64-bit Linux machine gives the error:
Setup Failed.
        Please install 32 bit Java and update alternatives links using update-alternatives command.
        For more details, refer KB article KB25230.

The Redhat/Fedora instructions on this page are incorrect:

They should be:
$ sudo yum install xterm zlib.i686 glibc.i686 libXrender.i686 libXtst.i686 libstdc++.i686 -y
$ sudo yum install icedtea-web

Download the 32 bit x86 Java rpm from:

$ sudo yum localinstall ~/Downloads/jre-8u25-linux-i586.rpm
$ sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /usr/java/jre1.8.0_25/bin/java 10

Now running NetworkConnect should work.
