When I try to print a PPD from a website in Netscape Navigator 3.0 & 3.01, my system piles up the type 10 & 11 errors and crashes. This has only been a problem from within Netscape.

Whats a PPD?  I can print a PDF of a website with the Adobe Acrobat PDF writer 1.0.  If this is what you are trying to do you might be having more of a Netscape problem then a printing problem.

Here is what I normally say about Netscape 11 errors;

Lots of type 11 errors are fixed by system 7.6, but if you are stuck with 7.5.5
here are some things to fix;

First check all disks with Norton Disk Doctor.

Get the PPC Interupt Extension
ftp://mirror.apple.com/mirrors/Apple_SW_Updates/US/Macintosh/System/Other_System
/

Get Netscape Defrost;

Get OpenTransport PPP 1.0
ftp://mirror.apple.com/mirrors/Apple_SW_Updates/US/Macintosh/Networking-Communic
ations/Open_Transport/
(there are files which it installs that cause less crashes with FreePPP  I
think its OpenTpt Modem that does the work)

Get Crash Less Often

Delete your netscape preferences (keep your bookmarks) and reinstall it.

Zap your PRAM (hold down Command option P R for two bongs at startup.)

Rebuild your desktop (hold down command option until the finder asks if you
want to rebuild and continue to hold down option throughout (I use a little
action figure to hold down the key for me))  There may be troubles with easy
open and it will then rebuild again-  if you don't use easy open disable it
with the exention manager. Or use Norton Disk doctor to rebuild your desktops.

Things to do if you are having memory problems (x doesn't have enough memory
but you KNOW it does) get finder fixer and increase the size of your finder.
Use Now Utilities to increase the system heap size.

And something I have done only on a hunch and isn't guarrenteed at all-
increase the size resource for the system suitcase to 4096 more then what it
shows (20000 change to 24096) and reboot afterwards.  You can do this with
resedit, and if you feel squimish about resedit Don't Touch It.  In fact maybe
I shouldn't have mentioned it. It seems to have helped me- but it could have
been  any number of the above that helped me out.

Good luck.

Netscape is always having printing problems for me, so I got Internet Explorer 3.0 from
http://www.microsoft.com/ie/download

It's MUCH better than Netscape for stability...

Netscape may not be getting along with Quick draw GX  I have narrowed down a similar problem to that in my computer.  One thing you can do, and I have found it helped me loads is to up the ram in netscape to 20 megs max 16 megs min and turn off virtual memory.  Netscape is a memory hog.  It has been known to have memory leaks but is able to work ok if you throw alot of ram at it.  Good luck
