Cant get Netscape to work...

when i try to open Netscape I get this:

Xlib: connection to "hpbox:0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Client is not Authorized to connect to server
Error: Can't open display: hpbox:0.0
Error Couldn't find per display information

*Note: I'm sharing a internet connection with my xp machine. Not sure if this has something to do with it.
