	libsocket is based on WSOCK. The behaviour with Winsock 2 is
strange. Things like getprotobyname and getservbyname work fine, but
creating sockets doesn't. libsocket uses a DOS function call to use
WSOCK.VXD's functionalit. I guess M$ changed how this VxD works between
Winsock 1 and 2, breaking libsocket and other libraries in the process :(
Does anybody have any information about Winsock 2?

	Cheers, Rich Dawe.
