Is there a plugin or other method that will allow Netscape to download & install from a .cab file?

No. Because of the potential for security problems, Netscape has decided not to support ActiveX

I should have mentioned that it would be a third party control. Sorry. I can get ActiveX, what I need is support for .cab files. Thanks for answering.

NCompass (which appears to have been the market leader) has stopped
development and made the plugin unavailable. Esker has stopped
development but still makes the plugin available. Fobstech also still
has a plugin available. However, neither the Esker nor Fobstech product
supports CAB files.

Active X is a tool designed by Microsoft specifically for Internet Explorer 4.0 and higher. there are programs which can read .cab files. try http://www.cnet.com and do a search for such program.
