I said Wine's IE is not meant for browsing. Even if it was full-featured, it's based on the mozilla gecko engine, so it's not suitable for what you want anyway.
Real IE6 and IE7 can be installed with winetricks. IE6 mostly sort of works, last time I tried IE7 it crashed on start.
Crossover includes hacks to make some things work that don't work in plain Wine, so real IE might work better in it. But are you sure the browser you used under it was real IE, and not just wine-gecko with the missing features added? (I don't know, I don't use Crossover.)
