Thunderbird 1.0 FC1 RPM

anyone know where I can get Thunderbird 1.0 for Fedora Core 1 as RPM? I am asking for the RPM, because I have not learned how to install any other way. Thanks!

Thunderbird does not need to be installed as such. Simply get the tar ball from, and extract it somewhere like /usr/local/thunderbird. Then the program to run would be /usr/local/thunderbird/thunderbird.

I would suggest creating a symbolic link in /usr/bin:
ln -s /usr/local/thunderbird/thunderbird /usr/bin
Then you can start thunderbird by running the command "thunderbird"
