On the Mac, you can throw everything of it in its own folder inside the
applications folder, thus making it completely self-contained. (the only
thing I see in the systems preferences folder is a "netscape registry",
all preferences, cache, bookmarks etc. reside elsewhere...

This allos you to run any version of NS on the same machine (though not
at the same time)
