I believe I did this already by going through dselect.  Selecting the 
Netscape4 install program, after copying the communicator-v45...tar.gz 
file to /tmp.  That didn't work.  What you are sugesting seems to be the 
same except in my case dselect used dpkg.  If I am not correct in this 
please let me know.  
Merry Christmas!
