The installer puts it in /usr/local/seamonkey by default, then makes a
link (symbolic?) to there from /usr/bin/seamonkey.

Both.

I'd recommend getting Kompozer (http://www.kompozer.net/) - it's a LOT
like Seamonkey's Composer, but it does a much better job with the
html, it has a nicer editor, especially for the html source (with
colors and all), and it has a slightly more flexible interface (in
most ways - I found an exception last night!).  And, if your Seamonkey
crashes, which it does a lot on all my machines, it won't take
Kompozer with it!
