One thing to look at - the "nt domain" is quite likely not the same as your
internet domain.  The nt domain is like a netbios workroup...  That's
probably not your problem, though.

Normally the www proxy is set in the HTTP_PROXY environment variable, the
file that sets global variables depends on which shell you're using
(/etc/profile for bash).  For example 
	export HTTP_PROXY="http://squid.cloudmaster.com:3128/"
is in mine somewhere...  There's a similar variable for ftp.

If you check out the linux documentation project, you'll likely find the
network howto, and maybe some of the others helpful.
Officially at http://www.linuxdoc.org/
Check http://www.linuxdoc.org/mirrors.html for a closer, possibly faster
mirror (mine's probably only one of the 2 :)).
