upgrade to firefox 2
I am running Ubuntu v6.05, and it comes with Firefox 1.5... installed on it, but I would like to upgrade to Firefox 2. I downloaded the archive file, and thought I unzipped / changed boot correctly but I must be doing something wrong because I cannot get it (fx2) to run, Fx1.5 is the always the version popping up. Thanks for the help

ls -l /usr/bin/firefox
sudo rm /usr/bin/firefox
sudo ln -sf <path_of_new_firefox> /usr/bin/firefox
