Red face Connecting via a Proxy

Hello everyone.

I loaded Mandrake 9.1 into my new dell and now the modem doesn't work. Big deal. I don't care much about that. In about a week I'll be in college with a nice big phat ethernet line to connect me to the 'net. But for now, I am trying to connect through my proxy, which is set up on a windows computer.

I am able to connect through it, but i have to configure each app separately and some apps don't allow me to configure for proxy use. How do i set up my whole system to deal with the proxy so that i don't have to go through this hassle with the many apps i wish to use?

Still, mandrake's beautiful. Help? anyone?
