IPX seem to work for a normal user, unless you want to create
lisetening sockets (which is needed for connectionless transports)
For IP, the kernel allows non-root users to listen on ports above 1024
(or 1023, I'm not exactly sure).
I have no idea why they haven't made a similar exception for IPX...
And to use Wine as root, you should be using "su -" (with the dash) or
a login in order to have the environment set up correctly. It requires
apps to be installed seperately for root into their own WINEPREFIX as
well. You might need to get root's DISPLAY and XAuthoritiy set up
before X works... (A SSH session with X forwarding might be easier...
'ssh -X root at localhost' should do it (SSH need to be set up to allow
root logins and X11Forwwarding))
