Question Running Multiple versions of Mozilla

I'm running multiple versions of Mozilla / Netscape / Firefox on Fedora Core 1.

To be more specific, I have the Fedora-supplied Mozilla 1.4.1, Mozilla 1.6, Netscape 7.1 and Firefox .8. ( I know, same engine, so why have them) I have set up a seperate profile for Mozilla 1.6 and Netscape named mozilla-profile and netscape-profile. When I start Netscape, it asks for the which profile (it lists both the mozilla-profile and netscape-profile) and when I start Mozilla it asks which profile, also listing both. I don't have this problem with Firefox, and it must not recongize the others exisitace.

I'm fine with haveing a seperate profile for each browser, in fact, that's what I want. My question is: is there a way I can set a default profile for each browser, or have it automatically choose a profile on startup?

If my memory serves me well, adding the following parametres will work:

-P profilename

to both mozilla and netscape...
