Installation Instructions


* Installation

Netscape Navigator Gold 3.01 is being distributed as a 32-bit and

16-bit windows program.

To run the 32-bit Navigator, you MUST have a 32-bit TCP/IP stack.

Both Windows 95 and Windows NT provide 32-bit TCP/IP stacks

that you can setup.

To obtain a copy of Netscape Navigator Gold, first download the

self-extracting executable file into a temporary directory.

16-bit : g16301.exe

16-bit : g16301p.exe (with CoolTalk and Live3D)

Double-click on the self-extracting file

to start the installation.

* For Win95 users, if you are using any versions prior to this

release, you will get multiple uninstall entries in your

Add/Remove program. If you prefer not having multiple

entries, you should do an uninstall to remove your previous

version of Netscape Navigator Gold before you install the new release.

* Please delete or rename your old CACHE directory and Netscape.hst


* For more information about this release, please read the release

notes under "Help -> Release Notes".


Running Netscape


What do I need to run Netscape Navigator Gold?

You must have a direct Internet connection before you can use Netscape.

The ability to send and receive e-mail does not necessarily mean you

can run Netscape. There are three requirements for Netscape Navigator Gold:

1. A direct Ethernet connection to the net, or a dialup

SLIP or PPP account from an Internet service provider.

2. TCP/IP stack

3. Netscape Navigator Gold software

You can get a direct connection to the Internet through a service

provider in your area. You will need to get a SLIP or a PPP account

from an Internet provider (for a dialup account).

When you have full Internet connectivity, you need to have a TCP/IP

stack, dialer, and WINSOCK.DLL file.

If you get the error message "Cannot find WINSOCK.DLL" when running

Netscape Navigator Gold, this means your computer is looking for the

WINSOCK.DLL file that is part of a winsock package.
