This is one way, and perhaps the easiest way. I've installed IE6 manually, but 
this is quite hacky.

I recommend WineTools. But copying the dlls should be enought.

The dlloverrides is correct.
You have to run Steam in a Desktop Window. I've had a look at this problem a 
few months ago and I have an incorrect fix. I'll try to really fix this next

I think you'll need Olivers D3D9 patch.
Does anyone have an update on the attempts to merge this patch?
