This command has an error and will not work. Note these errors:

This is because of wrong parameter "-d /.ies4linux/ie6". Obviously this will
not work! It should be "-d ~/.ies4linux/ie6". Also before running the command
please execute this (as a simple user):
sudo chown -R `whoami` ~/.ies4linux
sudo chmod -R u+rw ~/.ies4linux
To make sure that you have all necessary permissions. And run
wine_double_install as a simple user too.
Make sure that at "Applying source filesystem changes to the destination... "
stage there is no any errors! If there is errors then check for wrong
permissions or wrong source/destination and fix this.
NOTE: make sure that you have ies4linux installed in your home directory as a
simple user! You shouldn't have it outside of /home/! My script assumes that
both source and destination is in /home/someone/ directory because this is
ONLY proper path for any WINEPREFIX. I suppose I should add a check for that
in my script later... For now just make sure that both source and destination
begins with either "~/" or "/home/someone/".
