I have written a server that waits for a Netscape Client
to connect to it. When this happens, Netscape gives me
a bit of information about the Client Environment that it
is running on (e.g. O/S ) My question is this: Does Netscape
give any more information about where the Client is located
and/or is it possible to probe the Client when it connects to my server for this information?

No. What browser can give about machine that has visited is very limited. Thats because security. You can get name of the machine, ip address and what kind of browser does he use. From last information you can find out also on which system doest is run. For my linux it gets also kernel version, what is not very safe :(
It is alsno not possible to probe client, when he connects to your server.
