I installed Firefox 1.0 on my SuSE 8.1 machine about 2-3 months ago. There
was a simple installation file so there was no need for an RPM. I can
recall that it was a neat GUI invoked by an executable named
install-firefox (or a different name that's not far off...)
My point is: I think you over-complicated things. Installation of Firefox
was one of the least painful I have come across.
