+Summary: netscape starts navigator even when asked not to
+If you setup netscape to only open the email window
+and have no browser.startup.homepage specified,
+netscape still opens a navigator window because the
+st*pid /usr/bin/netscape script (boy, do I hate this one)

-The installation program in RedHat 6.0 (not RedHat 5.2!)
-cannot detect properly the devices attached to SCSI card
-controlled by a NCR53c8xx.
-When installing a message saying that 'insmod' failed for
-module /modules/ncr53c8xx can be seen.
-If (in console 2) is issued the command
-# insmod /modules/ncr53c8xx.o
-the more detailed error message
-/tmp/ncr53c8xx.o: kernel-module version mismatch
- /tmp/ncr53c8xx.o was compiled for kernel version
- while this kernel is version 2.2.5-4BOOT
-We are using the last version of the boot diskette (in
-the network boot diskette since we're installing via FTP).
-We couldn't find any updates for these in
-We worked around this problem issuing the command
-# insmod /modules/ncr53c8xx.o -f
-just before partition our SCSI hard disks.
This problem seems to be fixed now. Closing.
