I had the same problem at first too.  Instead of unzipping the archive you
downloaded from netscape, try copying it to /tmp and then using the
netscape installer which is provided as a debian package (in the web
section, under either contrib or non-free).  Install this package, and it
should set up netscape for you correctly. 
Hope this helps...
