When using the wine/cvs version of 27 september, the setup.exe stops 
with an error that installation fails - and if I uncompress .cab files 
like method #2 suggests and move the files, iexplore indeed works
However, using the current wine/cvs version, of 26 oktober, iexplore 
"installed" like that doesn't work;
I'll try to put in that register they provide (didn't before, but maybe 
wineinstall replaces that one too...)

So I tried installing using that setup.exe again, and when selecting the 
minimal browser, wine using it's default win environment downloads some 
files, and stops;
At that point, I change the win environment to nt40 and it finishes the 
download; it then hanged on mshtml.dll problems

Though in the mean time wine/cvs changed again :p now setup.exe tries to 
replace the regedit.exe or something and this breaks (is there anyway 
around that?)
