You forget that download and fetch Netscape correctly using apt-get
install. On the command line do 'apt-get update' then, when that has
finished, do 'apt-get install communicator' and after a while you will
have Netscape Communicator installed on your system.
Always check for a Debian version of any software you want - only use a
tar.gz version if you absolutely must or need to.
