change COMMAND netscape -remote 'openURL(%s)'
to COMMAND /etc/urlview/url_handler.sh %s
That should do it but I think there may be a problem with
/etc/urlview/url_handler. All I can get to work is lynx right now.

For that you would have to add it to the options in
/etc/urlview/url_handler. Or just put mozilla in place of Netscape.
But as I said, It doesn't work correctly. When I am in X with
Netscape open and use the urlview in Mutt or Slrn, I get the darn
xterm with lynx in it.
