I guess I posted this to the wrong list but thanks for your reply. One 
thing I am unable to understand is which directory is equivalent to 
Windows "Program Files" where all users have common programs installed 
for use. I tried to install Firefox to the same directory sturcture 
where Mozilla is installed and BOOM. But I guess that is a question for 
general Linux lists. If you prefer you can continue to post your reply 
directly to me.
