Which netscape is this, what Java do you have installed and is it enabled?
?help.start does contain some details of what you need.

.Renviron, and .Rprofile to work and affect my sessions. 
To the best of my knowledge I have handled these files according 
to "Invoking R under Unix" in Rintro. .First within R works OK and 
this is the way I customize R at the present time.

No idea: do the examples in ?Startup work for you?
