Click here to go to the Netscape site where you can download Netscape 2.0. Look around until you find where to click to download Netscape. Be sure to download the right one for your computer (Macintosh or Windows).
When your browser asks you if you want to save the file, you click "Yes" or "Save". Then you choose a folder in the dialog box that appears. Remember the name of that folder!
If you're not sure about all this, ask your parents or some other "expert" to do this for you.
Beware that it could take a while until you have downloaded Netscape completely. Up to more than one hour! So do this only in the evening when it's cheaper.

Okay, I have downloaded Netscape 2.0, now what?
Now you have to install it. The Netscape 2.0 install program is now on the hard disk of your computer in a compressed format. You first have to de-compress it. Locate the file in a folder window and double click it. This will start the decompression. Look carefully in what folder the decompressed files are put, and remember that. (If that doesn't work, ask someone to de-compress it for you.)
On a Windows 95 machine the install program automatically follows the decompression, so that's easy.
On another computer locate the folder where the decompressed files are and double click "setup.exe" or "install.exe" if you're on a Windows 3 machine, or "Netscape 2.0 Installer" if you're on a Macintosh. This will install Netscape 2.0 on your computer.

Then all you have to do is find the Netscape icon and double click it: off you go!
