Easily.  Just install it in somewhere like /usr/local/mozilla/ avoid 
clobbering your existing Mozilla installation (things like Galeon depend 
on the original)

Then, to have your users use the new Moz, just symlink 
/usr/local/mozilla/mozilla to /usr/bin/mozilla, and that'll do 'er.  
Note that you'll have to rename the existing /usr/bin/mozilla script; I 
use something like "/usr/bin/mozilla142".  That's how I do it on all my 
boxes.  BTW, this trick works very nicely with Firefox, too; I've done 
it on several GNU/Linux and OpenBSD boxes.  Install Firefox into, say, 
/usr/local/firefox/, symlink /usr/local/firefox/firefox to 
/usr/bin/mozilla, and the next time someone clicks on the Mozilla icon, 
Firefox pops up.  :-)
