I never had this problem installing Netscape 6.  I installed it as a 
normal user in a directory I could write to and then moved it to 
/emul/linux/usr/local/netscape6 later.  Besides the standard Netscape 
bloat and crash, I didn't have any problems.

I haven't been able to install any plugins, but I haven't tried too
hard, either.

I had a lot of trouble installing StarOffice 5.2, however.  I downloaded
the so-5_2-ga-bin-linux-en.bin file from sun and executed it.  The first 
problem I have is the setup script has the wrong path to test, which I was     
able to fix.  I also got some errors with shared libraries, which can
be fixed by setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH envar to /emul/linux/lib/
However, once I fix these things, the thing just finishes with no errors, 
and without leaving any setup files or any traces of any successful 

So how did you do it?
