linking to style sheets

I am trying to link to a basic style sheet that sits in a common area from
numerous web pages in different directories. 

This works in IE but in Netscape if the .css file is not in the same
directory I get an error the first time on accessing a page. This says that
it needs a plugin (x-pointplus) which is a java viewer for Powerpoint
documents!. If you do cancel the file comes through but without the
formatting from the style sheet. If you reload the page then it is fine.

I don't want to have to put a copy of the .css file in each directory as
that would partly defeat the purpose of using the style sheets as they would
all have to be changed in the future. 

Any ideas

Regards
Zan
