Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Well they are just hidden files. I think by default netscape will create it as a hidden file. don't know of a way around this since even if you deleted the file, it would regenerate as a hidden but you could maybe try to rename the file without the period in front of it...to keep it unhidden. not sure if that would work or not.
I use Netscape 6.2 and I verified the steps as I typed them so I know they work. You can clear both the history and the location bar this way. If you go under Edit, Preferences, Advanced you can clear the cache. My software package included Netscape 4.X and it didn't work the same way which is one reason why I upgraded.
I checked my Netscape directory which when I installed Netscape by default went to /usr/local/Netscape and couldn't find a history file. Oddly enough both Mozilla and Opera have directories in my home directory but not Netscape. Perhaps it's something I did wrong during installation but Netscape is working fine so I don't know.
