Angry Please Help Me!!!!!

Let me ask everyone a question here, is the penguin trademark for linux supposed to symbolize that no matter what you do in linux it freezes? cause that's happening to me....I'm running redhat 7.3 and almost no matter what I do (especially surfing web pages that need java) I freeze, I have the original netscape that came with 7.3, but I don't know where to get the newer netscape, nor do I have any clue how to install it. even when installing the updates on up2daate, I freeze, I thought linux was supposed to be reliable? Any help will be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks.

We need more information to be able to help you. What kind of hardware do you have in your machine? Is XFree86 configured correctly? What error messages do you get (if any).
