mozilla( default one ) is not working


Hello all,
Currently i'm on Redhat 9.
Few hours back i compiled my kernel.
Everything was running smooth.
But now mozilla browser is not working. Its not giving any error etc...........just not
opening.
Till last time it was working ( i.e even after compiling kernel ).........but now its not.
So i don't think that i commited some mistake during compilation of kernel.
Nevertheless...i made changes in the following categories during compilation.

Note : i'm new to kernel compilation........

1> Processor type and Features
2> General setup -> hot plug
3> network options
IP: multicasting
IP:advanced router
IP:tunneling
The IPv6
ATM
Frame Diverter
DECnet
4> Telephony Support
5> IrDA ( infrared) Support
6> File Systems
Partition Types
7> USB Support
8> Bluetooth Support
9> Kernel hacking
..............................................................
To get over through this problem, i deleted the ".mozilla" from /root
and then rebooted the system
but still facing the same problem

could anyone suggest why all this happened....

regards

Nothing is happeing........neither its executing the browser nor the control is coming back to the prompt.
The cursor is just staying on the next line.

Through other terminal i checked "ps -el"
for the entry of "mozilla-bin"....the status is "S".

regards

Note: i'm using the default mozilla browser of Redhat 9 i.e the inbuilt one.
