Netscape Navigator 4.08: Temporary Directory

Whenever I boot up Netscape, I get the following message:
Error: temporary directory C: does not exist. Please enter a new directory in the preferences box.

I looked for a place to put the temporary directory under
"file then  preferences".  There is no place.

I want to get rid of the message and store things under a temporary director called "temp"

first, go to the Explorer, click once on the C:\ so it is blue, then go to file, new, folder, and type the name of the folder you want to create in the root (where you wanted it, then enter, you should now see a folder at C:\temp

then open up netscape, click yeah, yeah to the messages about no server no connection, then go to EDIT/PREFERENCES/ADVANCED/CACHE, and enter the cache folder as:

C:\TEMP

close netscape, reboot, go on line and see if this folder doesnt fill up with all the crud that we get downloaded.

I changed the cache folder to C:\temp and it still comes up with the error message.

Try this (or look and see if this is there)
Start, Run, type "sysedit" , hit OK, now in the AUTOEXEC.BAT look for these lines:
SET TEMP=C:\TEMP
SET TMP=C:\TEMP
If not there then type this in exactly like that and save, exit, and reboot and try again

Your answer works!  It solves my problem and this eliminates some crashes that have been happening to my computer as a function of not having a temporary directory.

Thanks!
