I try to keep everything in rpm packages, so my systems are easier to
maintain. It also adds the appropriate gnome menu entry, and I imagine
the corresponding kde menu entry.

There's a good guide to building an rpm from a Firefox tarball, and it
should be fairly straightforward to tweak it to build an rpm from a
seamonkey tarball.

For the past few Firefox and Thunderbird releases, I used these guides
rather than wait for the rpm to appear in the Fedora or CentOS yum

Oh, the Thunderbird Howto is at
