Netscape not using netscape.ini

Tue Dec 16 15:41:14 EST 1997

We are upgrading all our library lab PCs (Win 3.11) from Navigator Gold 3
to Navigator (standalone) 4.04.  The first machine went fine, and we
changed all the settings (homepage, days for links to expire, etc.)
the way we wanted.  Then we made a backup, using msbackup.  Copied the
backup to another machine (we've been using this method for 2 years)
and everything looks fine except Netscape goes to its default home
page and our other ini settings aren't present.  

I'm at the end of my rope because c:\netscape\netscape.ini is the
same as the file on the first PC, and reflects our homepage, etc.  
That is the only netscape.ini on the machine, and the [netscape] section 
in win.ini points to it.  Where is Netscape getting those other ini
settings, and why won't it use the correct ones?  

Any help from the very knowledgeable people on the list will be greatly
