Netscape 6.2 installation problem on Red Hat 7.1

I have download Netscape 6.2 and did the installation. I followed the instruction:

Type one of the following to unzip and untar the archive: tar -zxvf netscape-i686-pc-linux-gnu-installer.tar.gz OR gzip -dc netscape-i686-pc-linux-gnu-installer.tar.gz | tar xvf - .
Change to the directory that contains the Netscape installation files: cd netscape-installer.
Run the Netscape 6.2.2 Installer with the run script: ./netscape-installer.
Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation process.

However, when I write on the shell netscape , the Netscape 4.7 opens. How can I fix so I would able to use Netscape 6.2.

Thanks in advance.

6.2 installed on my machine in

4.7 is in usr/bin/netscape I think
it's a shorter path so it starts first.


I put an app launcher on my panel with that target....
works like a charm
