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 ;-)
