netscape installation problem

hiya people,

kinda new in the linux software, and im trying to learn as much as i can...but i cant figure out why i cant install my netscape

i untarred the downloaded file in my usr/local and made the directory usr/local/netscape-installer

so far so good, then im supposed to run the netscape-intaller file,
so i type ./netscape-installer and get this error.

Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

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

any suggestion on how i can get this fixed?

Are you in KDE/GNOME?
