But the "Enable Java" bottom under Preference/Advance/ is

I have increased the memory for Netscape to 15MB, and reinsalled the Communicator 4.02.  Yet the problem remains.

32 MB, it is a Centris 650.
Is it possible that Java Communicator 4.02 package does not support Java for 68k mac (I know it works for a PPC at my office) ?

Please go into your Preferences folder inside your System folder.  Find your Netscape preference folders and delete them.  After this, re-installing Communicator should fix the problem.  Before you do it, export your bookmarks to a file somewhere on your hard drive, as the freshly installed Communicator will not have any of your old bookmarks.

After this, you should be able to enable Java.

I hope this answers your questions.

Have you tried version 4.04?  It is the latest version.

Java is not supported on any 68k machines, although you can run JavaScript.

I disagree.  Java works on 68k machines.  My dad's Centris 610 runs java.

Curtis -

Your dad may be running an older version of Netscape 3.0.x, java cannot be enabled with version 4 of Netscape. Check out the release notes at:
http://home.netscape.com/eng/mozilla/4.0/relnotes/mac-4.0.html
And 4.0.4 is very buggy, 4.0.3 is more stable, but still won't run java on a 68k machine.
