Add the line /usr/X11R6/lib to the file /etc/ld.so.conf and

Do you downloaded the correct version of netscape from
ftp://ftp?.netscape.com ? It's the version 3.01. After
downloading, put the file in /tmp and try to install it

Known bugs. They'll be corrected in Debian 1.2.1

Yes. It's in three packages under the "non-free"
directory. The files in non-free can't be in CD-ROM,
so you'll need to download them from some mirror
or the main Debian's ftp site:
the files are: "jdk-common_<version>.deb",
"jdk-shared_<version>.deb" and "jdk-static_<version>.deb".
You need the "common" file, and one of the other two.
Don't forget to download the file "Packages.gz" too, if
you want to see a more complete list of packages in
