For some reason mozilla did not install when I installed RH 3 ES.  How can I install it from the cd without reinstalling everything?

You can download the mozilla installer from

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.7.3/mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-1.7.3-full-installer.tar.gz


and then untar + unzip it using


tar -xvzf  mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-1.7.3-full-installer.tar.gz
and then cd to the directory and run the mozilla installer program

Once you get your internet connection up you can install it the Red Hat way with:

up2date -i mozilla

If you have yet to get your networking configured then mount each CD until you find the one that contains the mozilla RPM (you'll have to look at each one.  I don't have RHEL CDs available to me at the moment)  in the RPMS directory.   Then type:

rpm -ivh mozilla...                        where mozilla... is the complete file name of the RPM on the CD.

I don't recommend using what avizit recommends for installing Moz as you'll want to stick with the RHEL packages.  That's what you're paying them for!
