IIRC, the Navigator from version 4.72 of Communicator can be
downloaded from Netscape's site as a tarball. I got
communicator4.72 myself, and it was quite easy to install on
my slink system. (simply untar it and run the install-script).
The new Mozilla-based Communicator6.0 is compiled on potato
libs, => pain installing on slink.
