Cavalier Starting Problem...help about to light car on fire

Okay, for those of you who didn't see the thread in the lounge I've been battling with my 1997 chevy cavalier on it not starting, it doesn't crank when hitting the key, if you place it in neutral though usually it'll fire right up. The first time this happened I didn't know about it starting in neutral so I replaced the starter, that fixed the problem for a while. Then it started acting up again so I replaced the positive battery cable, that fixed it for a while. Then it happend again so I did the negitive cable, and it still wouldn't go, so out of desperation I put it in neutral and it started. So yesterday I replaced the ignition switch, a few of the contact points on the switch appeared to be burnt up And that fixed it for about an hour or so then it started again. The only 2 things I haven't replaced are the park neutral position switch and the neutral saftey switch Any help would be GREATLY appreciated...I'm about to the thing.

Sounds like the neutral safety switch to me. Possibly needs adjustment.
