Confusion about location of Mozilla files (Mandrake Linux 10.0)

I was in the midst of the installation of the Macromedia Shockwave Flash
plug-in for Mozilla when I was asked:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please enter the installation path of the Mozilla, Netscape,
or Opera browser (i.e., /usr/lib/mozilla):
------------------------------------------------------------------------

So I had a look in that directory and found the following sub-directories:

----------------------------------------
mozilla/
mozilla-1.6/
mozilla-1.7.2/
----------------------------------------

I suppose I have all of these directories because I've been unsure about
how to install new software in Mandrake Linux, and couldn't find the
latest version (1.7.2) in amongst the "install software" menu -only
version 1.6 was there, so I downloaded it from Mozilla's website and
installed it from the root desktop.
But since I didn't get any entry in the K-menu for it and couldn't
figure out if I had messed the Linux structure of doing things up I
decided to remove it and install the "official" Mandrake version the
proper way.

So I'm running version 1.6 now, but what should I do about those folders
I just mentioned? Remove some of them? Remove all of them, then
reinstall Mozilla again as these might be some "left over" trash from my
many installations?
I have no idea what the contents of the folders do, so below is a
listing in case someone else knows.

..... and how do I go about to install the Shockwave Flashplayer
(http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/...sion=Netscape4)
in Mandrake Linux 10.0?
