to uninstall mozilla 1.2 use : redhat-config-packages (add remove program in start menu ) , iassume that you use x-window (gnome or KDE). you cannot use redhat-config-packages in text mode.

then find in the "graphical internet" (or something like that), click "details", uncheck mozilla browser, click close (or something like that), then click "update". thats all.
to uninstall from text mode use : rpm -e mozilla-* (i dont know if this work fine)

to install mozilla 1.4 :if you already download it, you must unzip (or gzip or using "tar") it first. then find binary file "mozilla-installer" (or something like this) wait ... and that's all

I found that it didn't work, because of dependency problems:

# rpm -e mozilla
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by (installed) kdebindings-3.1-6
        mozilla = 35:1.2.1 is needed by (installed) galeon-1.2.7-3
I'd love to know what the error message means. One wouldn't want to remove galeon, kdebindings, would they?

I was able to yank off mozilla components previously listed as other dependency deficiencies...

You don't have to unistall Mozilla 1.2. Just install Mozilla 1.4. Before you install Mozilla 1.4. Rename /usr/bin/mozilla to /usr/bin/mozilla-1.2.

I suggest you don't use RPM files. Download archive files instead.
