    Crazy question I know.

    The situation is this. My sister needs a later version of Netscape for her Mac, her net connection is bad to say the least.
    I have cable net, but I only have a PC (miss my mac).

    Is it possible for me to download the Mac version of NS, on to my PC, and burn it to a CDR with my PC, then use that CDR on my sisters Mac?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yep.

    The Mac reads and understands most CD filesystems, so your CD will work fine.

    YOu need to make sure you download a .sit file to keep the resource fork intact on a PC. If you can't find NS with a .sit at the end post here and I"ll make one for you.
