Hi James;

  The problem is that states that they only support windoze 
platforms :-(

"...Streamer minimum browser requirements: Netscape Navigator® 4.7 - 4.79, 
Microsoft® 4.0 - 6.0 and a minimum operating system of Microsoft® Windows 95 
or higher..."  Well, Linux is higher than Windoze 95 :-)

  I tried konqueror (the version that comes with Red Hat 8.0) and nothing from 
the streamer will come up, with mozilla at least it will do something for a 
short while...galeon doesn't work either...

  Yes, I'm considering running InterNOT Exploder under wine...really wish we 
could work without ANY MICROSLOP products (**sigh**)
