remember when doing this that you must also remove directory write
permission. I've seen so many places with security in .kshrc (or similar)
where you can just ftp in and 'dele .kshrc' (ie, rm -f file, remotely).

similarly, if you just change the permissions on the prefs file, they
still have perms to the .netscape dir, so they can override the
permissions on the prefs file.
