There are two versions of Netscape on their ftp site. One
is labeled with a '1_2' in its title, and the other is
'2_0'. So I figured - hoped - that the '1_2' version was

Well jeez, I guess it's time to update.... So will it be
Slackware again or Red Hat...

Netscape 4.0 Won't Start

Did you chmod the file so it is executable ie. chmod +x netscape?

If you didn't then it will not execute.  If you are getting not found
errors then your path to the executable is not set correctly and the
system can't find it or if you are in the directory you must enter:

# ./netscape

The "./" tells the system to execute the file from the current



1. Netscape won't start media player

I have a streaming video file(.asf) located on my Apache server.
When I use IE 5.0 to access the file it automatically starts the MS
Media Player and I can see the video clip.  When I try to use Netscape
4.X to access the file all I get is a bunch of code scrolling by.  I have
same file on and it works with both IE and Netscape so I'm
pretty sure the problem is with the Apache configuration.
I have also accessed this file from several PC's running Netscape and get
same result. So I know it's not a particular browser config problem.
 I'm running Apache 1.3.12 on a Linux 6.2 platform.  Can anyone
tell me how to fix this??????  Thanks in advance!!!!!
