It's not easy, see answer 3. You could get a tarball from mozilla.org,
but you may loose some of the integration w/ GNOME/KDE, and it's files
won't be managed by RPM anymore. :-(

The Mozilla Client Customization Kit is probably the easiest way to do
this, though you probably could hack up /usr/lib/firefox-*/defaults in a
about:config is local to the user running Firefox.

Firefox 2.0 isn't in K12LTSP 6.0 because Firefox 2.0 isn't in Fedora
Core 6, on which the latest version K12LTSP is based. I don't believe
that FF2.0 had been released prior to the development freeze for FC6
(several months ago). The Fedora FF maintainer basically said it would
be a lot of work for what he saw as negligible benefit. It's been pushed
off to FC7. FF 2.0 just wasn't ready in time.
