SubjectNon-root IPX

From Transgaming (makers of WineX):

Is this true ? If so, what can I do to allow regular users to make IPX
sockets ? Is that a wise thing to do ? I'm interested in running a
Windows game (Starcraft) as a normal user. WineX has gotten to the
point where that is possible, minus IPX.

Thanks for your help.
