  Whatever the filename is when your PowerMac has downloaded it, copy it
into the '/tmp' directory on your Debian machine, and then rename that
file to the appropriate name as indicated above... i.e.

mv /tmp/netscape-v301-export-x86-unknow /tmp/netscape-v301-export-x86-unknown-li

  And then re-install the netscape package.
