Normally, yes.  The netscape installer automatically tries to use the
already existing files.

However, the fix to netscape for bash 2.0 only appeared in v3.01-7 or
there abouts, so that fix will not be installed unless you re-dl the
original archive.

If you don't care about that (or are using bash 2.01), then you should just
be able to upgrade the package without any problems.  Let me know how it
