Acroread comes up as desired in mozilla 1.5b & netscape navigator
4.8 when...

  - in ~/.mailcap i have...

      application/pdf; acroread %s

  - in netscape's Navigator->Application Helpers ...

      MIMEType: application/pdf
      Suffiexes: pdf

      Handled By->Application: acroread %s

    and, similarly for mozilla (Navigator->Helper Applications).

I forgot if i had manually set the above settings or
mozilla/netscape just read ~/.mailcap & adjusted themselves.
