I've played around with netscape since and it looks like you're right,
when i try to play a .wav file in netscape it crashes. The installer
for netscape for debian uses a plug-in called plugger to handle multi-
media type stuff, unfortunetly it doesn't set up the plugin. So when
plugger gets the wav file it just goes belly up and takes netscape
with it. Now to configure the damn thing.
