winetricks has a "fakeie6' argument to fool apps into thinking IE6 is
installed whether it is or not. I can never remember the URL for
winetricks, so google for "winetricks Dan Kegel"
Some apps require all of IE6 to be installed and working. It's been a
while since I checked this out, and you should only do it if IE won't
install by itself, you can use ies4linux to shove a square IE6 peg into
a round Linux hole.
ies4linux is generally not recommended as the best solution, as using it
deprives the wine devs of valuable feedback that could be used to
improve wine itself. It is useful however, for those apps that can be
gotten to run no other way and for users who absolutely require the app
