Netscape 4.08 and its components are installed on C:\Program
Files\Netscape\Users\baumjwb\Mail. I installed Mozilla on another hard drive in
a partition set aside for program files, G:\Program Files\\Mozilla.

It appears that the Wizard needs to find the copy of NSC4.08, I cannot browse to
it. Pity. I liked 4.08 and its mail interface, but it is getting increasingly
flaky. First it started running memory down to 0 and then not responding. Now I
cannot download mail from my ISP.

Do I need to uninstall NSC 4.08 on C:, uninstall Mozilla on G:, reinstall NSC
4.08 on G:, then reinstall Mozilla on G: for Mozilla to find NSC?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.I open Tools, Import, Mail, Communicator 4.x
2.The resulting dropdown box is empty and does not accept manual entries

Actual Results:  

Expected Results:  
Allowed me to enter the user profile path for the mail files I wanted to import,
or allowed me to browse to find them.

My OS is
Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition 4.10.2221 
running on a 
Dell OptiPlex GX200
