I need to look at the directory to make sure (it's not here with me now),
but I believe /u/firefox is a symlink which points to firefox-220.127.116.11,
and the link doesn't contain a slash; i.e. I did the following to create
# cd /u && ln -s firefox-18.104.22.168 firefox
I use "/u/firefox/firefox" to start this linux version. I don't use chroot
to use any linux binaries.
