      Description

      If we give an early JRE 6 OEM build to customers early, we may want to auto-update them to JRE 6 GA when it comes out. Currently this would work as following:

      1. User would get PC with JRE 6 OEM version
      2. User will be notified that a new update is available (JRE 6 GA)
      3. After accepting update, user will see the following confusing message:
      "This software has already been installed on your computer. Would you like to reinstall it?"

      We should change the message to something like this:
      "Before installation continues, we need to uninstall the previous version. Press 'yes' to continue"

      Also, we only want to update the 6 OEM users to 6 GA. We don't want to update 6 GA users to 6 GA. So we may need a separate update-xml file for each versions.
