Installation Instructions

The installer will allow you to choose which type of Navigator to place
on your hard disk. You can select a version designed to run on 68000
machines, Power Macintoshes, or a FAT binary for any Macintosh.

As always, it's considered good practice to temporarily disable any
virus detection software or non-essential Extensions or Control Panels
prior to installing new software onto your Macintosh.

1. Download the .hqx file to your Macintosh. If you are using Netscape
to do the download and your machine is correctly configured, Netscape
will automatically run the correct program to decode the .hqx file. If
not, you wil need to use one of the many utilities which can decode .hqx
files (Binhex format), we recommend something in the StuffIt family of
products, such as "StuffIt Expander"

2. To install Netscape Navigator 3.0, double click the installer named
Netscape Navigator 3.0 Installer.

a) Click "Install" to place a binary of Netscape Navigator 3.0 on your
hard drive. This will also install a Java folder inside the Netscape
Preferences folder. This folder contains items needed for Java to run on
your Macintosh. Additionally, the installer will place Macintosh Drag
and Drop files and Object Support Libraries into your System Folder, if

b) To specify a 68K, PowerPC, or FAT binary install of Netscape
Navigator 3.0, select "Custom Install" from the pop-up menu in the
