noodlelover, Netscape Navigator has long been gone (http://browser.netscape.com/). I'm not sure which application are you trying to install but if you want a browser like it, then you already have it since Mozilla Firefox is the default web browser of Ubuntu 10.04.

You can also try other browsers like Konqueror, Midori and Chromium. Open the Ubuntu Software Center and go to Internet > Web Browsers. You'll find there a number of applications.

And......Mozilla developed the gecko technology that was used in the last versions of Netscape. Essentially, Mozilla took over development at one point in time with Firefox as the product as an open-source product, if I remember correctly. Indeed, Netscape has been gone for a long time.

As was posted...Netscape Navigator is history, but if your interested in running history...let's go. First list all files in the folder that you downloaded. BTW...post the link where you found this download.
