(Newbie)Installing Mozilla on SuSE 9.0 Pro


First off I am an extreme newbie of about three days. I want to install mozilla 1.6 but I have no idea how to install "anything" on linux. I have the ftp files know what? Please, be light on the acronyms.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Download the rpms you want from this group...
http://www.usr-local-bin.org/mozilla.php
probably just

mozilla-1.6-100.SuSE.ulb.2.i586.rpm,
mozilla-calendar-1.6-100.SuSE.ulb.2.i586.rpm
mozilla-mail-1.6-100.SuSE.ulb.2.i586.rpm
Fire up
System-->Configuration-->Kpackage

File-->Open, select the RPM and install
It should be self explanatory from that point on, but post if there are any problems.

Edit: You don't want any of the .src.rpms :edit
