Just a note, for the TG50, you shouldn't have to have NetFront 3.0 installed when you want to install 3.1. In the TG50, NetFront is not preloaded in the ROM. So for me, I just went straight ahead and copied NetFront 3.1 over from my memory stick with no other version of NetFront being previously installed.
Other Clies that have NetFront in the ROM, that may be different.

Personally, I would suggest just leaving NetFront 3.0 in the ROM, and then just trying to move NetFront 3.1 into the ROM as well. I personally don't like deleting things that I can't get back (or were there originally), but that's just me.
To get NetFront 3.1 into the ROM along side 3.0, one thing that you could try (though, I've never done it myself) is to change the ID or name or something of NetFront 3.1. Then, you should theoretically be able to move it into the ROM along side with NetFront 3.0 since PalmOS will think that it is a different application (because of the different ID/Name). This can probably be done with a hex editor and the help of a program such as PRC Explorer (?) I think.
General steps are probably,
> Figure out what the Program ID/Name is (PRC Explorer may be able to do this)
> Open the NetFront 3.1 PRC on your computer with a hex editor.
> Search for Program ID/Name's corresponding hexidecimal code.
> Change that hexidecimal code to something else that is valid.
> Save the edited PRC file.
> Reopen it in PRC Explorer to check if the changes that were made are kosher.
After that, you could theoretically be able to load it into the ROM without PalmOS complaining about it already existing.
I've never this before for this type of situation, but, it could be worth a shot. Just make sure that you keep a copy of the original PRC file that you will be editing (or use Save As instead of Save). And make sure that when editing the PRC file, only change what values correspond with it. And just in case, do not make the name longer than it used to be. Try to keep it as the same length, just changing the individual characters that were already existant. If the name you want is too short, fill in the rest with spaces or another valid character of your choice.

Let's hope that's the end for me...
