Umm, unless I've been misled, Netscape6.2 is a branch off of the Mozilla 
0.9.4 release.  The Netscape builds lag the Mozilla builds by a couple 
of weeks, as time is needed to add the Netscape-specific items.

The Netscape 6.2 release notes page, 
<http://home.netscape.com/eng/mozilla/ns62/relnotes/62.html>, directs 
users to look here <http://www.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla0.9.4/> for 
specific issues.

The date in the browser string you are seeing echo'd in the About: page 
("Gecko/20011019 Netscape6/6.2") is most likely the date of the 
Netscape-specific build.
