If you want Netscape 4, do "apt-get install navigator".  The navigator package
is a meta package that depends on all the real netscape packages.

This is just my opinion, bit you should install Mozilla instead of Netscape 6.
The mozilla packages were added to potato recently.  Do "apt-get install
mozilla".  You can also try the nightly builds - just download the tarball,
untar it to some directory, and run it from there.  Generally, the nightlies
are better than the latest milestone release, and should be better than
Netscape 6.
