I did it and I encountered no problems at all. The only vicious thing each
browser will try to do is setting itself up as the default browser. But you
can turn off this behaviour in both browsers.

It looks like, on a single system, Explorer 4, Netscape 3 and Netscape 4
all can coexist without problems. I have never managed, however, to install
Explorer 3: with regard to Explorer, you have to choose whose side you are
on: 3.0 or 4.0.

Not here. No interferences.

Oh, a thing worth mentioning: I did NOT activate Active Desktop (and I'm
frightened at the idea). I don't know it deeply, but I don't think it will
cause problems anyway.
