Netscape won't save preferences

I have a Performa 578 and I use Netscape Navigator 3.0 as my internet browser; Netscape never saves my preferences, always informing me that there was an error saving preferences and the error was -120.  I have downloaded Netscape a few different times, but I always end up with the same problem.  What can I do?

I've got a couple things to try: First, look and see if there is an old Preferences file somewhere, and if so, delete it. Then, look through the Prefs in Netscape and see if there is a way to tell Netscape where to save the prefs. A -120 error means Directory not Found, suggesting that Netscape is trying to save a file to a location that does not exist.
