I've been trying to force myself to use nt4 mode & nt4 native dll's; Oh, and 
just to make it even more borked I'm using IE6 ;).   Absolutely no dice 
whatsoever, here.  The installation goes OK, but I just can't find a 
combination of native/wine dlls that doesn't go "bonk" real fast.  I think, 
this is about what I should expect with such a get-up, IOW its not a 

I'm considering building a crude (and slow) implementation of the Nt "Ports" 
API (you know the one -- the "Undocumented" one with pretty darn good free 
documentation on the web).  This would allow us to get further (and who 
knows, maybe actually do something useful) with the native nt rpcrt4.dll.  
Could open up some interesting code paths... and, after providing an 
alternate high-performance implementation (or before ;)), such a thing could 
even be used to implement LRPC more like windows...
