Angry Netscape 7 Install


I have downloaded the Netscape 7 installer on my Redhat 8 box. When I click on the installer icon nothing happens. Any ideas?

Thanx

What type of file is the installer? Is it a sh script?

log in as root, or open a terminal and "su root". Then you can type in a terminal "sh (name of file you downloaded)" and then your installer should run.

If you're in the same directory as the .sh file, you might even be able to run it with ./file.sh (that being 'dot forward-slash file.sh')
