"Do I have to A) wait fir auto update to eventually update me to latest version B) manually uninstall Firefox 1.5 or C) install 2.0 right over 1.5, or D) something else?"

Exactly. After 2.0 came out I waited for a few days for the auto-update of my 1.5, which never happened. I then decided to download 2.0 and went ahead with option C) which to me is the most natural. Everything installed fine, but when I went to check the list of installed software, BOTH 1.5 and 2.0 where listed. So I clicked on uninstall 1.5. Well, it turns out that that action uninstalled everything, 1.5 AND 2.0, so I had to reinstall 2.0.

I'm with you krissilver, the handling of this release (not the release itself) was poor.
