well, to celebrate (finally!) getting the Linux emulator to run, I 
decided the hell with the hourly charges my ISP charges and download the 
latest Netscape (2.0b3) for Linux... with Java support.

Got it installed, and running.  Boy is it nice.  Well, almost.  Whenever I 
try accessing a Java site (e.g., I get:

EMT trap (core dumped)

Is this a known problem?  Should I stick with something "safer" like 
maybe 2.0b1 or b2 of Netscape?  (i.e. did b3 introduce some obscure bug 
that causes it to die under FreeBSD?)

Other Linux progs like DOOM and even text-mode stuff (like ls, cat, etc.) 
work beautifully.

I'm running 2.1.0-RELEASE on a 486/66 with 16 MB of RAM, if that matters.
