You didn't have to use that "proxy downloading weirdness" *at all* with the original Netscape 6.0.
Unfortunately, the best installer (the one that does it all in one go without requiring a network connection) was "hidden" in a sea sub-directory on Netscape's FTP site, which 99% of users seem to have completely missed (subsequently then bitching about the far-more-awkward smaller installer that's more "visible" on their FTP site).
I had no problems with the Netscape 6.0 "full" installer myself and it's the much better installer cos if you want to re-install (or, indeed, install on more than one machine), you don't need an active Net connection (and a lot of patience waiting for the download) to do so.
