    Hello there,

    I bought a "book" and in order to use its full features (interconnection of video and image links) I need to use either

    Internet Explorer - version 4.0

    Netscape Navigatpr - version 2.6

    web browsers.

    I found the Internet Exporer Version but apparently I can not install it on my Leopard system since it is "too old-classic" and programmed in an environnement not used anymore. Any clues how can I solve this and proceed ?

    Any ideas where I can download Netscape 2.6 and will it work ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you tried the Firefox web browser? If that doesn't work for you then the best solution for you would probably be to install Windows in a virtual environment like VMware Fusion or Parallels. You would have to purchase the virtualization software and a license for Microsoft Windows.

    You can't get Netscape 2.6. It was released in 1996. That's some book you have there!

    As the other poster suggested, you should try Firefox. If anything will work, it will. It provides good compatibility with older systems, so as long as your book used technology that was relatively standard (for 1996!) it should be fine. If it uses anything proprietary, you might be screwed.

    Get Firefox at:
