Netscape broswer install issues


I had downloaded Netscape 7.2 to use one my SUSE 10.1 system. I am having a major problem installing this program as it continues to tell me I do not have proper rights to install. I do, as I have gone into YaST>System>Profile Manager. Under my user name, I have permissions to "everything". What am I doing wrong?

Any and all responses would be greatly appreciated!

If you want a browser with similar features you should install seamonkey. Netscape 7.2 has not been updated in years.
