I just wasted the better part of the last three days trying to install IE5 on a Power PC 5500. Everytime I try to open IE5 the application quits and I get "Type 3 Error." I have reinstalled the system software (clean install). I even reinitialized the drive. The computer has 64 Megs of RAM and is running System 9.1.

What causes a Type 3 error? What can I do to get a working Web Browser on this computer. When I try Navigator 4.7, it says a " Unable to load (whatever site I try) connection failure has occured."

Any advice would be appreciated.
It's not getting what you want, it's wanting what you've got.
