I had it installed once in 7.0, but when I went back to 6.4, it always got to
installing 10/11 and died. I burned up a lot of internet hours trying to get
it, as have others. Have yet to get it installed in 7.0 again....same problem.
Someone posted something about getting the tarball instead of using
netscape-installer, but I never found it. I think persistence pays off, but I
know I'm done trying. May just order the CD. It was nice, but crashed too
often to be the browser of choice, anyway.
My $0.02.

SuSE 7.0Pro
