You'll be able to use Netscape to browse through the proxy, but thats it.

To use the Window proxy server for tcp/ip connections, you have to install the "proxy client".

The best advice I can give is to replace your over priced MS Proxy with aLinux box running Squid, then everyone can use the network.

If all you want is to browse the web, you just need to configure your web browser to use the MS Proxy server.
If you want to do other things you will need to activate the socks support on the MSProxy, and install an msproxy socks compatible client on your machine. The only on that i know of is Dante (http://www.inet.no/dante/), that as experimental msproxy support on it (never tried it myself). Unfortunatly it only supports TCP, so if you need to work with UDP for instances, youre out of luck.
