Shift click is another way to make Netscape download to file...
Also, try editing the preferences (Edit -> Preferences -> Navigator ->
Applications) as netscape sometimes comes configured to try to display
file types it shouldn't...
For instance, if Netscape insists on displaying .tar files instead of
offering the Save As popup: select the line with Unix Tape Archive,
click Edit and change the Handled by to Save To Disk
Linux: Turn on...Tune in...Fork out...
