After spending a couple of hours with Wine docs I'm thinking that looks like a 
daunting task.  I'm now looking at a possible qemu solution thanks to another 
poster on the list.

At worst, Win98se is good enough as a dedicated box just for MSN.  It's 
already behind a dedicated firewall and I could always route through a proxy 
and limit it to msn.com sites only if necessary.

Seeing how this thread has progressed, maybe I should have posted to the 
emulation list in the first place ;-)
