Custom Installation Instructions


Since you're already a Qwest.net subscriber, you were sent a CD. You will need to install Netscape® Communicator™ from the CD.

This will allow your Qwest.net account information to remain unchanged and enable you to have the same user account information on both computers or just on your new computer.

The Custom Install instructions are different for Microsoft Windows 95/98 and Windows NT® users than for Macintosh users. Both sets of instructions are included here. You may want to print the instructions before loading the Custom Install version of Netscape from your Qwest.net CD.

Remember: Print the Custom Install instructions for the operating system of the computer you will be installing Netscape on. It may not be the same as your current computer.
