Re: Netscape/Linux

  Netscape don't do a CD with Netscape on but they have partnered with
  Caldera who produce Caldera Open Linux (http://www.caldera.com/) and
  Netscape is available on their CD's (except the free 'Lite' version).
  Currently I think it is only Netscape 3 available this way. It seems
  Netscape don't want to tread on Calderas feet by offering a
  Netscape/Linux CD although it would be a good idea as they could sell
  one with each major distribution.(eg Netscape/Slackware,
  Netscape/RedHat, Netscape/Debian etc)
