depends on the window manager you using. netscape 6 should have installed itself in /usr/local/netscape6. in kde, right click on the desktop and select - create new - link to application, then browse to the location of the netscape prog. click ok and that will put a icon on the desktop. in gnome ( and i don't use gnome as much so there is probably an easier way) select panel - add to panel - launcher. type in netscape6 in the top box and that should make a button on the panel for it.

Thank you for directing there RSHAW... I ended up dragging an icon (that opened n6) to the desk top (windows trick lol) and I can now open n6... I have a feeling I have a corrupted download and it didn't install correct but, it works fine as it is...
I'm still havinf problems after downloading files tho'
I downloaded real player and the rpm (software manager) insists I've already openned the packages (I haven't) and I can't as yet find the folder where I supposedly opened the packages...
It ain't easy....)
