See the plugins list using the URL "about: plugins" in the Netscape
address bar. The plugin of realplayer should be listed with the mime
types that it handles.

Now check the Netscape Application handlers and see if .rm, .ra, .ram
extensions are set to similar mimetypes out there.

Also see that when Netscape asks you to download the files, what is
the mime-type of the file to be downloaded. Normally it is displayed
in or near the titlebar of the download window. It should be something
like audio/x-pn-realaudio or something. If it is nothing like this,
then the server sending you the files is not setup properly ...
