Unhappy Update to Firefox 3.6.3 Acer linpus lite


Hello

OK I do have a file called firefox-3.6.3-tar.bz2 which I downloaded from the mozilla web site. This file sits now in "Downloads". /home/usr/downloads

now I want to rename the old firefox 2.0 version just in case I am going to mess up something.

I believe the "old" version sits in /usr/lib - so I just can rename this with mv firefox to firefox.old right?
if I have done that how can I unpack and install the firefox-3.6.3-tar.bz2 file?
Please please please be VERY specific as I am such a newbie and need idiot proof instructions on this.
thanks for all the help
