Thanks to Peter Dalgaard and Ott Toomet for answering my question.  I'd stick 
with renaming the 1.4.1 R directories and files to have the old version run 
for a while until I clean out any of my potentially broken R programs/scripts.

By the way, it does seem that building an RPM would be better for 
uninstalling.  I have a couple of questions in this regard.  (This is getting 
a bit off-topic, so please reply off the list.)

1. I'd like to get pointers as how to set up my own RPM build from R sources 
(1.5.0 for now, later versions in future).
2. How would I handle installation/uninstallation of contributed packages?  
Is it possible to build RPMs for them too?

Thanks a lot.
