Ok I have a 2 part problem. I will be happy if I can get netscape to install via a package.

I tried using the instructions on the netscape 7.x package instructions and I get an error "Uncompressing XCOM failed:1"

I did try modifying the config.ini so that it would not install netscape radio, winamp, viewpoint - only the composer piece.

Any suggestions?

Netscape's installer didn't like being run from an UNC share. It almost looked like their (probably javascript based) code was dropping one of the \\ 's at the beginning.

I copied the ns_temp folder locally and it ran fine. Then I created a wrapper to copy the ns_temp folder to the local drive, install, and then clean up.
