how install FF 1.0?

Fedora core 3
newbie - I know nothing. This is my second install - this time it's got 10GB!!

up under Gnome. It came with FireFox pre-release that updated to something but not the full 1.0 . Cool. So I went to FF and downloaded it and chose open, since I didn't know where to install it, or if I had "permission" (single user machine). Finally it told me it couldn't find the xpistub library, so I knew I didn't put it in the right place.
1.Can I do this under Gnome?
2. or do I have to go to X for everything like this, which I know nothing about...
3 or am I in the wrong forum?

Install this, and retry the install. The package should be on your CD's, if not, find it here.

It means go to that search engine and look for xpistub. That site is a search engine for RPM's.

If you don't know RPM stands for Red Hat Package Manager. It's software for Red Hat/ Fedora Core that you don't have to compile.
