I have a Performa 6220Power PC, 32 RAM, Netscape 3.0 and am running Ram charger 3.0.  I also often run Clarisworks 4.0 simultaneously with Netscape.  
I often get "unable to load application "unknown" due to error type 1 (or type 3) errors.  I have to restart each time.  I have expanded the preferred and minimimum memory size in both Netscape and ClarisWorks.  Still same problem.  Not always but often.  Anything I am missing?

I am going to guess that the problem you are having is Ram Charger.  Both of those errors seem like they are memory errors.  Try disabling Ram Charger and trying with Apple's VM instead if you need more space.  If you get the same errors, then maybe thats not the problem.  If you don't get the same errors-  tahdah!

Error 1 is a Bus error when the Mac tries to access a memory location that doesn't exist, and 3 is an illegal instruction error where the computer tries to execute some information that isn't computer code-  Could be it got the wrong address and is executing a picture or something as code.  So I guess RamCharger is giving you grief.

I will also include my how to fix type 11 errors in netscape  (or at least most of them)

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)

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.

OF course backup your stuff before you mess around with resedit.
