Thanks so much for your past help. Of course, I have
another quetion. I've got X up and run Kdesk - coool.
However, the browser -I haven't configured - debating
on netscape. That brings me to install or not?
The bsd ports site mentions that mozilla is
comparatively large and that bsd\netscape 4.x has a
security hole and the modules for linux.7x may be
OVERLAYS IT MIGHT PRODUCE. So I thought I'd ask what
you think? I use bsd to emerse myself in a mixed
network and will ultimately use it as a backend
router/dns/mail server. Browsing would just be cool. I
guess what as a novice Iam asking is could I risk
netscape 4.x (would it compile and install for the
CDROM or do I risk linux? Nothing earthshaking.

Since your only reason for not using mozilla is the size, I'd go with mozilla. Netscape isn't exactly small itself - even if you only use netscape-navigator.

I've also used skipstone, which is a very lightweight browser based on
the Mozilla rendering engine.

If you choose Mozilla, you will probably want to build it (assuming you despise the generic arch packages, like me) with the WITHOUT_MAILNEWS and WITHOUT_COMPOSER defines. They'll significantly decrease its size and compile time.
