The only advantage I know of is that netscape does some stupid things when
installing, among them placing files in ~root/.netscape/ that should go in
$MOZILLA_HOME/.netscape/ - other than that, I can't really see any
advantages (which reminds me that I should submit as a bug against this
package the fact that java didn't work right off; I had to make certain
MOZILLA_HOME was set when running netscape)
