Can't open display-Netscape on SUNos4.1.3

After installing Netscape navigator 4 on a sparc 5 sun os413
,from the installed directory I type as per instructions,
./netscape. I am logged in as root and receive the following error.
sparc5#./netscape
xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
xlib: Client is not authorized to connect to server
Error: Can't open display: :0.0

How can I authorize this program for the display?
(I am running Openwin)
Thanks
Gary

If you su'd to root, access to your X server may be authorized for the user you logged in as, but not for root. Try 'xhost +hostname' to allow any users on the machine access to the X server (however, you have to be authorized already to use this command, so you need to do it as the user you logged in as). There is a way to give access to just a particular user but I'm not sure what it is.
