      Description

        In developersguide.html. There are two parts need to be updated for Hopper
        FCS.

        1. Under 'Using the Auto-Install Feature', 'Initiating the auto download'
           subsection, the JavaScript contains the following code:
           <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"
                  SRC="http://developer.netscape.com/evangelism/lib/js/ua.js">
                  </SCRIPT>

           Unfortunately, Netscape site has moved above URL and when I use Netscape
           to test this auto-install feature, I will got a 404 - Not Found error
           from Netscape. I tried to search ua.js on the new site: devedge.netscape.com
           and looks like it's been deprecated.
           http://devedge.netscape.com/toolbox/examples/2002/xb/ua/

           Don't know what to do next. This section may need re-write completely.

        2. Still in this section, going down, there is another code section:
        <OBJECT CODEBASE="http://java.sun.com/future/location/jinstall-1_4_1-win.cab#Version=1,0,0,2"
                  CLASSID="clsid:5852F5ED-8BF4-11D4-A245-0080C6F74
                  284" HEIGHT=0 WIDTH=0>

        The url above is invalid. Now we should have the final URL stable.
        Is it supposed to be
        http://java.sun.com/products/javawebstart/autodl/jinstall_javaws-1_2.cab
        Please double check with developers.
