Why won't Safari Launch?

I recently installed Safari and used it for about a week. Now when I try to launch it the icon just bounces 3 or 4 times in the dock and disappears. The program never opens. I tried deleting all preferences and reinstalling the program but same result. How can I get this to work? I'm running OSX 10.2.8 on a 400 mHz G3.

also try to remove the reciept for Safari, if you do not then it will only try to update the app.

to do so go to /Library/Receipts and remove the Safari.pkg
