why are you trying to install 4.8? versino 7 is nearly out? either way, either get an RPM from rpmfind.net or a binary version from netscape.com tar.gz's are silly for somethign like netscape. search this site for more information about installing software.

Rename Mozilla with Netscape. Might not work.

Run the ns-install script as root. Everything should go pretty smoothly. I'm curious to know why you are installing such an old version of Netscape when there are much more capable browsers such as Mozilla and Phoenix.

Thanks for the help, but I do not need to install it now. I was just wanting it so I could access the Capital One sight. They are finally able to let you use Gecko now. Thanks.
