No luck with the stock communicator, mozilla, or galeon from Redhat 7.2
(with redhat up2date patches). I haven't tried Netscape 6 yet (which I
have installed on a 2.4 kernel before, I installed netscape 6.1 on a redhat
7.1 machine which I thought was a 2.4 based kernel righ....I'll check at
work, if so I still have the .gz file on that machine for netscape.)
