and then run it. hope m on the right path :)

Sir, issue is not with using konquerer or any other
gui tool, i can access the network in my Slackware,
but my Wine cannot detect these network settings. i
did the 'ipconfig' command just to check if my wine
detected any network( just trying some cheap hacks :)
). i read somewhere that wine should be made to point
to the underlying Linux network settings and somewhere
else that wine detects these network settings
automatically, im really confused ! 
ive seen my Boss access the entire network in Wine, so
i know its possible, just wanted to know how to do
to make it short, i want Wine to be able to access
other machines on the network, not my linux, my linux
can already do that. i dont want to use samba either.
