Wine Networking

I'm having trouble getting networking working under Wine. I've been 
looking for docs on network settings, but apparently it should 'just 
work' using my PC's linux network settings. This machine has a genuine 
windows 2000 partition installed, so I've pointed the Wine C: drive, 
profile etc to the 'real' windows 2000 ones, and tell it to emulate 
win2k. When I run Lotus Notes, it says that it can't connect. When I run 
'wine cmd', and then run ipconfig, I get "Error: TCP/IP is not running 
on this system". Telnet and other IP apps also dont work.

Is there anything I need to do to enable the network? Would I be better 
off using the 'fake' windows install under /usr/share/wine-c? Are there 
any docs about on configuring networking under Wine?

I'm using the Wine RPM from fedora (wine-0.0-0.fdr.2.20030911.rh90) with 
Redhat 9.
