Let's gather some information. First, find where the program is by running the which command: which netscape Then, find out what kind of file it is with the file command: file /output/from/the/which/command If it gives you output like "symbolic link to /foo/bar/baz", then run the file command on the symlink (e.g. /foo/bar/baz) until it tells you something besides "symbolic link to". Finally, give us the output of "ls -l" on that file. If it's a shell script and you can determine which binary it's trying to execute, ls -l and file that too. > (2) Somehow I was able to download Navigator once using lynx.

Can lynx's memory be increased? Use wget, it saves straight to disk so you don't have to worry about the memory available. You can use the = key when the link is highlighted in Lynx to find the url. BTW, is there a reason you don't just install one of the Potato prepackaged netscapes from non-free? -- finger for GPG public key.
