Point is, they both will run from the same   ~/.mozilla/firefox  directory for 
the setup  and the LOCK  file. (and bookmarks and history files, etc)  Thus, 
I think it would be difficult to run both CONCURRENTLY  and I don't know why 
anyone would want to do that.

Run 1.5.xx   or run 2.0.xx    each on its own, but not at the same time.
