How to appear netscape 7.1 icon ?


First time for Linux. I'm a root user
I'm using Red hat 9.0. The mozilla browser is installed as default and its icon is on the left conner of the windows. Then, I installed Netcapse 7.1 but I can't see its icon elsewhere in the windows.

This is the step I often use to run Netcapse 7.1
Quote:
Open /usr/local/netscape,
Then, doule click on netscape (Type: Shell Script)---->a windows apprear with some options ( Display / Terminal / Cancel / Run).
Finally, I choose Run to enter Netscape.
Do you know how to bring up Netcapse clickable icon to place that's easy for me to handle (panel or desktop...) and an optional window (display/ terminal/ Cancel / Run) appears each time

I also installed java plugin by following step by step in manual instruction at website sun.com (download *.rpm.bin, then extract to *.rpm and run *.rpm by command rpm). Nevertheless, Java can't plugin into the browsers (mozilla and netscape) although I can't see folder /Java and its subfolder

I did it but the netscape file that I click, isn't app! The window notice that it's excutable text, so an optional window appear with 4 options (Display, Terminal, Cancel/ Run) for me to choose each time I open it.
I just wanna know where Linux stores applications type files after I install programs. I can't find application file type in /usr/local/netcapse folder but I only see "shell script" file type (In Linux, can we call it shell script type also)

i don't know if i'm helping u the way u want, but to create a "shortcut" to netscape on ur desktop, u should be able to R click desktop/ create link to app/ give it a name *Netscape* in the command to execute, just type "netscape" without the quotes. as far as location of file types...try google.
