First of all, thanks to everybody who answers my request. I cannot list
all of you because you are too many.

Most of you suggest to run: netscape -install to give netscape a private
color swap area. - doesn't work for me.

I am using Kernel 1.2.3 and XFree86 3.1.1. And the SVGA card I'm using is
Trident 9660.

Currently, XFree86 3.1.1 doesn't support my card, and I have to let Linux
treats my card as a general VGA16.

When I run 'netscape -mono', I can get netscape running with bouch of

So, my current solution is:

  run netscape 1.1 if I want to view images and/or graphics
  run netscape 2.0 if I want to view text files. (netscape 2.0 supports
                   multi-language fonts)

XFree86 3.1.2 has the improvment of supporting Trident 9440 cards.

Thanks to, he gives me the URL site which
has the newest XFree86 3.1.2D beta version (click on the link to the Xfree86 beta release)

 that version can fully support Trident 9440 cards and has improvement in
supporting 9660/9680 cards.

However, XFree86 3.1.2D will expire on June, 96.
