When I run netscape it opens fine and I can browse docs that

I downloaded the Linux 2.0 version of Netscape 4.6 128 encrypt.
I performed a manual install (no rpm in tar file) and set my
environment variables as described in the netscape readme.
It hangs even before the 4.08-1 version did. No luck.

Reopen this bug again if the problem still occurs after updating to
