Question Problems installing Netscape 6.2

Hi, I'm very new to linux, having installed Suse 7.3 (personal ed). I'd just d/l Netscape 6.2 (full package) and am having trouble installing it.

I'd logged on as su, followed instructions to unzip the package (worked properly), but the problem is, whenever I try to run the installer by typing

cd netscape-installer

i get the following error message :

Xlib : connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib : Client is not authorised to connect to server

Gtk-WARNING ** : cannot open display: :0.0

and then goes back to command prompt.
Did I do something wrong? Thanks in advance.
