Wine out of the box uses your existing network interface: there is no special setup needed. However, looking at Winehq: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...estingId=33102 it appears that Google talk doesn't run well under wine.

what about any other program that uses the internet and has no software to improvised nor is it cross platform

the fact that any other voip software that is easy and free to use i prefer skype since it's cross platform, easy to use, but it does have its dis advantages, only 2 people can do a video conference and thats all i think of are disadvantages

but same thing happens in windows sp i don't care

As I said before, other programs that connect to the internet and that work under wine do not need any special configuration. To see if any particular programs work under wine or need special configuration check the apphq database.

You can also look at this:
