When I had problems with java in Navigator 4.03, the culprit was the
fact that I wasn't setting MOZILLA_HOME before launching netscape.
Try doing:
  MOZILLA_HOME=/usr/lib/netscape netscape &
from an xterm.  If this solves your problem, then you may want to
replace the file /usr/bin/X11/netscape (which at this point is a
symbolic link to the netscape executable, so rm the file before trying 
to edit it) with the following script: (this is what I do)
export MOZILLA_HOME=/usr/lib/netscape
exec /usr/lib/netscape/netscape $*
