Question mozilla and real player problems

I know this is a much gone over subject. But I have searched these boards and googled a lot before posting this, but I cant find the answer.

Currently Im running RH9.

Ok, so what Ive done is:

I eventually managed to upgrade from mozilla 1.2 that came with RH9 to mozilla 1.7. It works fine but only when I cd to its folder as root and type ./mozilla.

Obviously this is not ideal so can anyone tell me how to configure the gnome menu to launch mozilla?

Thanks in advance

go to you Gnome menu shortcut and right-click
there should be a "Target" option or something similar, simply repoint it
dont have a shortcut? got to your menu-config... cant remember exactly where, but just poke around a bit
just a though: might try right-clicking the 'start' button - this might allow access to a config option - thats how it works in KDE at least

You may also want to make a symbolic link to your mozilla executable in /usr/bin so its easy to call up at all times. As root[code]ln -s /path/to/mozilla/executable mozilla[code]for example.
