You could do it like this. 
Copy /usr/bin/firefox as /usr/bin/firefox-original
cp /usr/bin/firefox /usr/bin/firefox-original
Then make a tiny bash script 

======
#!/bin/bash
/usr/lib/firefox-1.0.2/firefox

======

Save it as /usr/bin/firefox then make it executable

chmod 755 /usr/bin/firefox

It's dirty but it should work. Personally I use icewm and just change
the menu item or icon to point to the version of Firefox I want.

BTW don't forget to create the links in your 1.02 firefox plugins dir
for flash and java
