If I try to install Mozilla-firefox, do I have to uninstall the current Mozzila that I have installed, or can you technically have 2 browsers?

Easy steps:
1. Go to http://www.mozilla.org/download.html
2. Download Firefox for Linux (firefox-0.8-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz) to your home directory
3. Open your home directory in Konqueror (if you are using KDE)
4. Right click on "firefox-0.8-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz" and choose "Unpack here" under "Activities" (I'm using the swedish version so I'm just translating, poorly).
5. Click OK to extract the files in your home directory
6. Wait...
7. You will now have a new folder called "firefox"
8. In that folder you have a file called firefox. Double-click on it and the program starts.
9. Drag the firefox-file to your desktop and choose "create link".
10. Enjoy

Thanks I installed Mozilla-Firefox by double clicking the Mozilla firefox RPM package icon and it asked for my password. I typed it in and it installed automatically and it runs great.

Don't know why my RPM installs automatically now, it didn't before, but I am not complaining.

Thanks....
