Post Moz1.5 Installed, How To Run?

Im so embarassed. I DLed the RPMs for Mozilla 1.5, stuck them all in a directory and ran rpm -Uvh *.rpm. Everything worked, and, if I type it again, it tells me everything is already installed. But I have no idea how to run it now.

The problem is that the links all point to the old version (whatever shipped with RH9), and aren't working.
Typing mozilla at a command line doesnt do anything, and doing a find / -name "mozilla*" finds everything but the actual executable.

Ive read just about every mozilla post here, and did just as much googling, to no avail.
What am I missing?

Im trying to get GAIM to work properly as well, which is why I DLed the RPMs (wasnt sure if the nss and npsr were included with the tar). Is there a better way to do this?

its most likely in /usr/local/mozilla and u can run it by:
if not, then find this package by doing:
updatedb as root and then
locate mozilla. You can uninstall older version by doing
rpm -evh old-mozilla-package.rpm
