Netscape on the network is fairly simple. How I did it on my side was use
smb to map a home drive (\\homes\user to h:\) for each user. Install
Netscape but when prompted for the user directory, specify something like
h:\netscape\ (Netscape defaults to c:\program
files\netscape\users\username). This path needs to be the same for all
users on all machines.
When a new user is added, you log on as that user, run the Netscape profile
manager and enter the path. Works great for a small number of users, but
can bog down a network with too many users due to Netscape referencing its
You don't have to set up multiple users with Netscape since Netscape will
look in h:\netscape\ when it is launched. With this method a user network
home directory is required.
