Networking support

Hmm, I've tried to get napster to work though my proxy server, I point it at
the servers IP and the socks5 port 1080, but it refuses to connect.  I have
also tried to get GTA to work on an internal network game, but it could not
find any hosts (even though there was one.)  Does WINE need to be
configuered for network use?  Does it use the Linux config, a wine.conf
setting or do I need to hack the windows registry?  Or is there something
else I need to do?

Many thanks,
