first successful install.......lost

Newbie success at the command line!!!

I have successfully installed my first tar.gz (mozilla 1.4) at the command line. The elation of actually doing something at the command line is very rewarding. However, the joy was short lived. Now I can not seem to find the program to access it under root or any other user.

I got through the installation wizard. I started it up, but know do not know how to find and access it again.

I have the mozilla icon on both my user desktop as well as my root desktop (KDE, RH 7.3). Of course when I click on it, it still runs the older version. Clearly there was a step I skipped; probably in all the excitment.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Here is something from the release notes:
To start Mozilla, change to the directory where you installed it and run the ./mozilla command.

You didn't miss anything. If you don't lke the above way, change the entries for your icons on the desktop so that they poin to the right place.
