How to get Netscape browser for FC3?


I wish to have the Netscape browser avail. within my FC3 environment. But I cannot seem to find Netscape after clicking "details" in the Add/Remove Package Management panel (which also doesn't have a search feature either).

Any steps from this point onward to obtain Netscape's browser?

Thanks in advance,
Eric

P.S.: I search under "Netscape FC3" and found nothing relevant

first try as root something like :
Code:
yum install netscape
if this does not work try the version with the installer:
http://www.netscape.de/netscapeprodu.../download.html


P.S. Why use netscape? Even slackware that contains many old-fashioned stuff has dropped netscape and uses firefox.

Thanks for the useful posts. I normally use Mozilla.
I need Netscape since some HTML documentation for my needs has a command that calls Netscape. I can always change the command...
