networ_query_posts with offset?

Hi,
On the front-page I built two custom queries based on the 2.x post indexer/recent posts code so that I could display the latest global post at one spot and the next lates global post at another spot. I used custom limit on the mysql query to do this

With the 3.x release I'm unable to figure out how to do this. So my question is if there's a param to the network_query_posts function to skip the latest global post and start of at number two?

Thank you
Tomas
