When I installed the Debian package that is used to install what I downloaded
from www.real.com, Netscape could not see the plugin, for some reason.
This was not a problem when I downloaded the rpm from real.com and then used
Alien to make a deb from it.
Now I am able to actually use the RealPlayer plugin on Netscape.
