do you have any apple system cds ? if you install os 8 or higher you 
should get netscape. you will need a newer mac os install cd anyway 
because you will probably have to repartition your drive, unless you 
are adding a second hd.

gentoo does not have a license to redistribute stuffit on the install 
cds (though maybe we should get one).

maybe you could copy the needed files from another mac over appleshare?
