    I'm running linux Mandrake 7.1 Which comes with netscape. I was wondering if I could install internet explorer instead? If so, would it be worth it, or is netscape better?

    I normally run a win98 sys, so I'm not familiar with linux or the programs that come with it

    What if I have a program like whine or virtual pc. If these programs will let me run windows based programs, why not e.i.

    Its not a big deal, I can just learn a little about netscape and I'm sure it'll be fine

    You should try using Opera for your browser. I believe the linux version should come bundled with Mandrake 7.1. If not, you can download it from http://www.opera.com/
