Well, since I already had ie6 installed under Wine (using ies4linux), I
took a shot at installing Shockwave. After setting the ie6 "security"
level down, Shockwave installed and ran just fine. Unfortunately, it was
rather slow, even on a moderately fast machine. Tested by coloring
Connie the Cow's friends Wally and Patch. It does work, but I suspect
the kids won't like it. And I suspect that means even a shockwave plugin
running under Firefox would be too slow too.
