switching between versions 7 and 8

hi,

i have seen, from a couple of posts over the years, that this is obvious 
and elementary to many of you, but i could really use a little 
hand-holding. (I have never seen an answer that i could put into action.)

can someone please tell me _exactly_ how to set up two versions of 
mathematica so that i can run either one -- not simultaneously --, 
without having to go change the names of folders?

i am running version 7 on mac OS 10.6.5 -- i.e. snow leopard. i have 
downloaded version 8. all i want is to be able to run version 8, quit 
it, and then run version 7, quit it, and then run version 8, etc.

thanks,

rip
