When I tried to install IE 5.5 I had to copy shell32.dll and shdocvw.dll from
real NT4 SP3 and add a few registry keys:

[Software\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion] 979490633
"CSDVersion"="Service Pack 3"
"CurrentType"="Uniprocessor Free"

[System\\CurrentControlSet\\Control\\WINDOWS] 979490633

I don't know if all are needed, but "CSDVersion"="768" is really needed,
it means SP3 is installed.


P.S. Anyone wants to add this info to some docs?
