Thanks for taking the time to read my question.

I just downloaded FireFox and would like to install it.

I found these instructions but am not really sure what they are doing, or what path I should be using.

I'm stuck on the "mv" line. I don't know where I should be putting these files.

I have extracted the FireFox tar.gz file to FileSystem-Home-Brad

Thanks for your help.

Why not just do it the easy way?
Yum install firefox
better yet, read this thread (http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=148903&highlight=swiftfox)

Navigate to your /home/Brad folder and use the mv command.

It will move the Firefox folder to /usr/local and then you should be able to do the rest of the commands without any trouble.

I'm going to try


yum -y --enablerepo=development install firefox

It's just going to take a while.... dial-up....

Thanks,
