        Unless you are running Netscape as root, they probably aren't
related.  If you are not running as root, Netscape has no power to damage
your file system.  We use the 4.0x series of Netscape for LINUX, which is
(IMHO)  more reliable than the 4.5/4.6 series.  The one I often install

Works so-so on Debian 2.1.  Crashes or freezes up once in a while.  

                                Hope this helps,
