what you do is you uninstall mozilla-mail and mozilla-psm before uninstalling mozilla. You never posted this error in this said you couldnt uninstall it using rpm -e??

That's the spirit!! Reading manual pages, using help forums a little patience
and caution ... I see you becoming accustomed to linux in no time!! Really!
Now, about the mozilla 1.2 uninstalling: respect dependencies - don't force
rpm to install/uninstall rpms that leave unsatisfied dependencies.
Dependencies are there for a reason - respect them if you want a peace of
mind. Now to uninstall mozilla:

-- See what packets depend on mozilla:

rpm -q --whatrequires mozilla

-- Remove these programs first:

rpm -ev <depend1>
rpm -ev <depend2>

-- Remove mozilla it's self:

rpm -ev mozilla

You can do all these in one go:

rpm -ev mozilla <depend1> <depend2> ...

That's all there is to it!!
