You should change your n/w connections nameserver(s) to point to the
machine that runs tor and listens on port 9999. You can get your
machines ip by opening command line and typing ipconfig and pressing enter.

Though I'm not sure if it is possible to configure WXP to use nameserver
that listen to other port than 53. With Linux or BSD one can use
netfilter(?) or iptables to forward port 53 to 9999. Maybe you should
configure tor's "nameserver" to listen port 53?
