Unfortunately, this does not work for everybody. The Digital UNIX
version of Netscape uses shared libraries and requires /sbin/loader,, and from Digital UNIX. Digital does not currently
license these items separately from the Digital UNIX product. I also
do not know the legality of "borrowing" these items from a licensed
Digital UNIX system, whether via copy or via NFS mount or what-have-you.

I cannot divulge details, but suffice it to say that we're in
discussions with various third parties with respect to providing
Netscape as well as other key applications on Linux/Alpha. Believe
me; I'm as frustrated at the lack of certain applications as any
of you are 8-)
