Earlier, you didn't have to "find the file on the internet" either.
Anyway, I've "reverse-engineered" ies4linux and came up with this short
and simple instruction for installing IE:
$ wget http://download.microsoft.com/download/ie6sp1/finrel/6_sp1/W98NT42KMeXP/EN-US/IE_S5.CAB
$ cabextract -L IE_S5.CAB
$ cabextract -L -F inseng.dll ie_5.cab
$ rm -rf ~/.wine ie_5.cab IE_S5.CAB
$ cp inseng.dll ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/
$ wget http://download.microsoft.com/download/ie6sp1/finrel/6_sp1/W98NT42KMeXP/EN-US/ie6setup.exe
$ wine ie6setup.exe
But one problem remains: When running:
wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Internet\ Explorer/IEXPLORE.EXE
Wines built-in Internet explorer starts. How can it be disabled? I've
and even renaming /usr/lib/wine/iexplore.exe.so, without luck.
