"The Mozilla browser-suite Milestone 0.8 edition now is available in RPM form for the Red Hat 6 and 7 Linux distributions on i386, Alpha, and SPARC machines. The RPM editions of Mozilla 0.8 are leaner and meaner than the standard Linux builds available from the Mozilla Organization. These RPMs might work with other Linux distributions also, but they were built with Red Hat Linux in mind."

"At 6.4-MB, the Mozilla 0.8 basic RPM is smaller and faster to download than the standard 10.8-MB version. The RPM version is easier to install than the standard version and better integrated into the Linux operating system installation."

"The RPM edition is a system install. So you merely install it once as root rather than install it in each individual user account as you do with the standard Mozilla Organization Linux build. After you have installed the RPM edition into the root account, the first time each user runs Mozilla, the Mozilla 0.8 RPM edition sets up an individual profile for that user."
