Thanks for the reply. I gather that Whip! only work with Microsoft
Explorer. Here's the answer I got from Autocad:
"Dear Autodesk Customer,
Thank you for your question through the Autodesk web feedback center.
Whip was not designed to work with Netscape 6.0, it may or may not work
with that browser.
I've tried Whip! in Explorer and the Autocad files from another site came
up very nicely, was able to pan and zoom. Haven't figure out how to print
them out yet. I got excited because this would allowed my clients to look
at drawings in the .DWF format on the web.
