group policy and netscape

    I have netscape on a computer configured to load a certain default webpage. I pushed the profile up to the profile server and want all computers in the lab to use that profile. However, when people use netscape on any other computer than the one i configured netscape asks for what profile to use and where to store it which they can't due to the computers needing to be locked down. Any ideas how I can configure netscape to always use one profile path without prompting just because a different user logs in?

I did that and saved it up to our profiles folder and it still didn't work. It just keeps asking if I want to setup a profile.

oops, sounds like I was a bit lazy:
  netscape.exe -P"profile-name"

still prompts, its like it knows that a different user logged in than the one that initially made the profile and wants to know what profile to use.

I turned profile off changed the account and copied the users profile back up. I have a PROFILE used for creating profiles. Unfortunatly netscape's regestry.dat file remebers who was initially logged in when netscape was configured. That data gets copied up to the profile server. When it comes back down it trys to read the configuration from the PROFILE users "Documents and Settings" directory which it doesn't have permission to. So it prompts. So when creating a profile you have to use the same user account that the profile is intended for not a dummy account used for creating profiles. It works well if your doing it for a lab where the user accounts are all the same name.

you cannot start multiple instances with the same profile for obvious reason
