How it's done... I don't know, never done it before.
There are some built-in functions for some of it (look up mplay in the manual under the help menu).
Other than that, there's a dll that a lot of people use...

As for the concept of multiplayer.....
You need to send packets back and forth between client and server, the server running the game and the client displaying dummies and sending input. Here is a brief overview on packets.
The mplay_ functions take care of this for you though. Look at it in the help, it should give you a decent understanding of the process.
