Don't know if this is what you're looking for or not, but I bought (about
$30 USD) the "CrossOver plugin" thing on recommendation from a co-worker,
and it works very, very well. I am using it on my Linux laptop. The
installation was totally automatic, and all the plugins seem to work with
both Navigator-4.7 and Netscape-6 (mozilla). I have tried the Windows
Media Player, Shockwave, and Quicktime plugins, as well as the Microsoft
Word Viewer, and they all work. I do not use Windows at homme or at work,
and this was the perfect solution to my problems of "can't listen to audio
samples on cdnow.com" and "star-office is too big and slow just to read
occasional word docs".
