Web Browser Help

I have RH9 installed. I want to update the Mozilla web browswer. I just downloaded the latest version of Firefox ( I guess that's the new mozilla) before I unpack it, is there a way to remove the current web browser and put the new one in it's place? Is there something special I have to do?

Also, I have a bucnch of mp3 music files I just pulled off my windows xp box. It appear that mplayer can not play them. What is a good mp3 player that will play these files on linux?

Question 1:

Firefox is a web browser made by mozilla, but can be installed in addition to mozilla. They are not the exact same browser.... reading aroudn the mozilla site will explain the differences.

Question 2:

Red had intentionally removed mp3 support from their os, because they are bastards All you need to do to get it back is to uninstall their media players, and go download the origional versions from their respective websites, and install from souce. a bit of RTFM, but nothing too difficult.
