    I can be a little more specific on this point. Netscape with
    kernel 2.4.0 _does_ connect/download at a few local (New Zealand)
    web sites (maybe 10% of those I've tried). I can't download
    from _any_ distant site. It doesn't die, it just doesn't function
    properly.


    Several people have suggested I remove ECN from the kernel, or
    disable it. Well, ECN has never been selected as a config option
    in the kernel, so this is not the source of the problem....


    Thanks for your suggestion,
    Roger Young.

    Just a data point - Netscape 4.76 is working wonderfully
    for me on several 2.4.x systems - well, netscape does die
    fairly often with bus errors, but when it's running it runs well -
