This has been done, there is a default web page on my computer now.
But the web browsers (well, lynx at least) ask you what you want the
default to be.  Perhaps it would be nice to have 

	1) Use the default web page URL on this system.
	2) Enter another default web page URL.

It really needs Netscape to run well. BTW, I've run satan on our sun
and directed it towards the 3 Debian GNU/Linux boxes we have, and it
could not find any problems with them.  So it seems that most
well-known holes are covered. :)

P.S. Of course nobody should believe this means Debian GNU/Linux
machines are secure, there are still security holes out there. The
most recent ones I've seen discussed are lpr and /proc holes.
