For what it's worth, I've installed those packages on several
(otherwise) hamm systems without any problems, either with the install
or with running netscape afterwards.
First I installed libc6 and all the packages with the same version
number as libc6 by pointing to frozen (slink) in /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get install libc6 libc6-dev libc6-doc locales timezones
Then I ftp'ed the netscape and navigator packages and installed manually
with dpkg (because it wasn't clear what to ask apt to install):
dpkg -i dpkg-awk_0.7.1.deb netscape-base-4_5.deb
dpkg -i netscape-base-45_4.5-1.deb netscape-java-45_4.5-1.deb
dpkg -i navigator-base-45_4.5-1.deb navigator-smotif-45_4.5-1.deb
dpkg -i navigator-nethelp-45_4.5-1.deb
(dpkg-awk showed up as a dependency somewhere along the way, I forget
your man pann
