Why would you want to do that?  Running netscape (or anything as large
as a graphical web browser) as root is just asking for trouble.  SWAT
does not require you to run your web-browser as root, just to have the
root username and password.  It can also be administered from a remote
computer, depending on your security settings (hosts.allow and freinds).
