You should install it on atleast one of those pcs you rattled off . . .
there's a lot of quirks going on w/v.6 (as you obviously know)and people are
downloading, using it and trying to view sites you made. Also, downloading a
flashplayer with NS6 is a very inconsistent experience.

Now do you just want to ignore NS6 imprprieties or see what your stuff looks
like to a NS6 user thus redirect-warn-adjust accordingly.

Asking someone to DL a 300k Flash player is one thing, but to advise they
need to DL a multi MB browser that's compatible is entirely different.

I guess the question continues to remain - what will you do with your
outcast visitors? Is it worth providing them with alternate/veiwable content
or is it not in your sites plans best interest to do so.

The browser wars continue . . . :(
