I don't know if that's a practical suggestion for users of RH
Linux (and some others).  There are system utilities that
depend on 1.5.2 being installed, and the system will complain
pretty loudly if you try to uninstall 1.5.2.  You can ignore
the complaints and uninstall 1.5.2 despite system dependancies,
but I haven't been brave enough to try it.

Has anybody successfully replaced 1.5.2 with 2.0 on a RH[67]
box?
