	Where did you install NS, /usr/local/netscape?  If thats the case do you have
a directory (invalid symlink?) named bookmark.htm there?  That seems to be
what this error message is suggesting.  BTW, there is a bookmark.htm file in
NS's directory on my machine.

	Did you put the new location in your PATH variable?  Supposing its in
/usr/local/netscape, does '/usr/local/netscape/netscape &' work?  You may be
logged in as root (not reccomended) and trying to run it from its directory,
in which case does './netscape &' work?
