That was easy, thanks.  It even almost works.  ;^)  Pages and pages
of errors with missing locale C and Xkeysym when I start netscape.  I 
fixed that a few months back on my i86 machines and will have to compare 
my X install.  It does segfault bus error when I try to go to a link.  
AFAIK that could be my raw X install, netscape or even fvwm2.

Can I ask what libstdc++ version and what netscape version you are using?
349548 Aug  6  1998 libstdc++.so.2.8.0
netscape 4.08 mklinux

Thanks,
