Netscape 6 Installation Guide (continued)

Again, this installation guide applies to Windows 32-bit environment, MacOS 8.6+, MacOSX and Linux 2.2 . Netscape 6 is the next generation of the brand new browser.

You can get Netscape 6 by free downloading, or order Netscape CD from Netscape.
If you choose to download Netscape 6, I recommend you choose the complete download version (all in one), and you can reduce the downloading trouble and can easily distribute it to another computer.

After you've downloaded Netscape 6, double click on the download file. The complete download version is called NSetupB.exe in Windows, MacNS6FullInstaller.sea.bin in MacOS 8.6+, Netscape6-macosX.sit.bin in MacOSX, and netscape-i686-pc-linux-gnu-sea.tar.gz in Linux 2.2+.

Step 5:
Now, you will have to select additional components you are going to install.
Sun Java 2, install this one if you want to take adventure of the truly cross-platform Java technology (via Java Applets) or if you are a Java programmer. Note: this Java2 runtime engine is newer than any Java runtime engine come with Microsoft Internet Explorer.
Quality Feedback Agent, it will information back to Netscape when your Netscape 6 has crashed. None of your personal information will be sent to Netscape, only some mechine codes and environment variables will be sent. You will get a warning window each time if you choose to have Quailty Feedback Agent on. It feature will help Netscape to build better and stable products, however it might be annoy if the product crashes often.

Net2Phone, Not recommend you to install it.

HP Printer Identifier Plugin, it provides extra links to Netscape's print centre for extra printing hints or support. Not really needed.
Classic Skin, installed this one so you can make Netscape 6 feel like the lovely old day's Netscape Communicator.
