If there is a conflict, then the link is not created. Note there is no
-f on the link command.

Does it really matter? Note the symlinks in /usr/lib. You'll see many
links to other links.

This may be the best solution. I'm not sure why the script didn't work
for the OP, I suspect a typo, but just mentioning it should be enough.

I don't see any benefit in this at all. Perhaps I'm not seeing the obvious,
but just don't this as anything but an unnecessary link.

For sure the best thing to do is remove the script and insert some text
in its place. I'll wait a few more days to see if there is more input
about the firefox -> firefox-1.5 idea.
