Thanks for the link Felix.  For anyone else going down this road, you should
know that it ain't easy to run FF 1.0 and 1.5 together.  The best solution I
found (without spending half the day messing with it) is PortableFirefox[0],
who offer nice portable (i.e. truly "standalone") versions of FF 1.0, 1.5
and even 2.0beta.  A couple others have given some ideas[1,2] centering on
the -Profilemanager command line flag, which I tried and it works fine,
though you either have the profile manager coming up every time you start FF
or you much about with batch/shell scripts.  IMHO PortableFirefox is just
easier.  FWIW!
