I just intalled FreeBSD 3.0 on my system.  I would like to stress that some
of my questions may seem obvious, but I am a Unix newbie at this time.
I am performing my installation in a very controlled, incremental fashion
and once each "milestone" is achieved I proceed to the next.  Having
completed successfully my X-Windows configuration and having chosen, in the
meantime, the Afterstep window manager, I decided to go the next step
(pardon the pun).

I installed the Nestcape Navigator 4.5b2 port - and apparently all went well
since I obtained no errors during the installation.  However, I cannot
manage to run it (either by the icon on the AfterStep wharf or directly).  I
have performed a whereis netscape to try to find the location of it, but
obviously it is not anywhere in the defined executable path.  I have not
been able to find it, and would appreciate anyone's help in getting this up
and running.  Once I have the browser running properly, I will continue with
the PPP configuration to begin accessing the net.

The installation is on FreeBSD 3.0-Release.

WHile originally I planned to set up the server as a development server and
not a work station, I am becoming more inclined to also use it as a work
station.  To that effect, I would like to know if anyone is running the Star
Division's Star Office 5.0 Personal Edition successfully.
