I'm so very new!! :-), but I believe yes would be the right answer :-) as it actually comes with Mandrake 8.2 :-).. it's not installed by default but you can go in and install it..

Depends which version you go for.

You have to pick the Linux version of it, if you try to run the Windows version then it won't work (unless mabye if you are using WINE, but that would be a very silly thing to do)

Yes, but you will manually have to a shortcut to your desktop or toolbar. However, Netscape sucks. Mozilla works far better and blocks pop-up ads

Mozilla is great, there's also Galeon! wich also blocks pop up ads and is very fast :-), I would not bother with Netscape personaly but i guess it's what ever you prefer :-)..

Galeon is just a stripped down version of Mozilla which is based off of Netscape. I personally use Galeon because it seems to be the fastest for me, and I like the no popup ads thing. If you wanna use Netscape just go with Galeon basically the same thing but improved.
