Interestingly I _JUST_ decided to go through this myself on a raw wine
install of .9.15 

So I did the following (Some relate this Subject, some just FYI):
1.  Ok, RPM installed.  Now what?   I need IE.
2.  run winecfg, create new Wine install.  (Icon says 'Add Application',
thought it was for installing applications :/ )  Exit.
2.  Read Install/Config HowTo http://www.winehq.org/site/howto
3.  Follow link to appdb
4.  type 'Internet Explorer' in search
5.  Click Internet Explorer link
6.  Click 6.0
7.  Look confused for a moment, then scroll down far enough to see
there's a HOWTO with a dark green background that's hard to see in
8.  'Install dll?'  Screw that, follow link to IE6 at MS.
9.  Download IE6SP1 ie6setup.exe 500k.
10. wine ie6setup.exe
11. Error.  Go back to Appdb, get dll from link at dlldump.com
12. wine ie6setup.exe
13.  Error.   "The download location information is damaged"  WTF?
14. Ok, maybe I should choose custom install.. Did I get the option?
    wine ie6setup.exe
    No options, installs complete.

15. wine IEXPLORE.EXE  
    White Page.   Not good.

16. Search for 'Could not load Mozilla'
17. Install ActiveX Control and learn it's re-written and not done yet.

So I did all this to test some 'web' VoiceChat,
http://www.univoice.us/demo/  that installs from a cab file through

Is this functionality lost with this migration from IE to internal
