Since I'm now maintaining the Website, I'll add some simple instructions
for Win9x users pertaining to what Jean outlined above.

I'll also add to the download page that if you're using Win9x version of
Netscape, you need to hold down the shift-key while clicking on files
ending in '.img' and/or '.tgz'. Anyone on this list know what the
equivalent action is when one is using Micro$oft IE? (I've never used it.)
I've seen somewhere on the Web as to what key(s) or button to click to
download a .tgz file with IE, but I don't remember it.
If I get an answer to the last question today (Wednesday), I can get these
fixes taken care of today.
