User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624

When I try to install Calendar from either one of these urls,

I get the following in an Alert dialog box:

"Failed to create directory
You probably don't have appropriate permissions
(write access to mozilla/chrome directory)
If you installed Mozilla as root then you need to install calendar as root as well
Or, you can change ownership of your Mozilla directory to yourself and install
Error code: -215"

None of my folders associated with mozilla are write protected.  This message
seems more appropriate to a Unix type installation.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Navigate to the url
2.Click either of the install links in the Windows row and the Mozilla 1.4 column.

Actual Results:  
Calendar downloading proceeds normally and seems to complete.  Then when the
installation phase starts, the above mentioned error dialog appears.  The
installation fails.

Expected Results:  
It should have installed Calendar correctly or it should have told me exactly
why it could not.  I am using the classic theme in Mozilla 1.4.

When I was using Mozilla 1.0, I was able to download and install the calendar
using "install 0.8",  This
installed correctly and subsequently worked fine.  When I installed Mozilla 1.4
from a zip file, the calendar didn't show up in my navigator so I tried to
download and install the appropriate calendar version.
