error while installing netscape


im very new to linux and this is my first install of any new software so i could have done it wrong.
i tared the file and and it is in my /home/me dir and i go to install netscape, the GUI comes up and i get 3 or 4 screens in but when it come to make a directory in /home/me/netscape i get a popup that says -624 error. then i tried to install it to the /usr/local/netscape but it says i dont have permissions

I don't know about -624 error.
To install in /usr/local/netscape you have to be root. I did this installation as root and everything worked.

To do that, in a terminal:
$su
password
#netscape-installer
