Mozilla upgrade -Ltsp setup


I am trying to upgrade mozilla 1.2.1 to 1.4 on our ltsp setup, i need all the icons and menu's which load mozilla via the /usr/bin/mozilla script to load mozilla from the mozilla 1.4 directory instead of the old 1.2.1 directory. Is there any script which will translate the /usr/bin/mozilla file over so it will open 1.4 ??
thanks
chris

Talking Problem fixed - Answer posted for others help

Ok here is what i did. I had installed mozilla in /usr/lib/mozilla1.4
The links in kde (and i assume gnome) point to /usr/bin/mozilla this runs the old mozilla in /usr/lib/mozilla.1.2.1 i renamed this to mozillaOLD then copied the new one from /usr/lib/mozilla/1.4 into it and edited the lines in it from the default directory to the one i used
moz_libdir=/usr/lib/mozilla-1.4
MRE_HOME=/usr/lib/mre/mre-1.4
they now look like that
HTH

Question Prefs.js

As an aside is it ok to just copy and paste the default preferances file (prefs.js) from the old mozilla directory to the new 1.4 directory (ie are the pref's files the same acrosss 1.2 and 1.4)
thanks
chris
