For me ie6 setup and ie6 work nice with WIne CVS from yesterday(April 05, 
2005). I tried installing ie6 on a fresh fake windows drive. The needed 
things are:

(Probably winver set to Win98)

*native commctrl.dll in C:\windows\system. Why? Does ie6setup load some native 
dll instead of a builtin?

*Delete the symlink C:\windows\system\regsvr.exe. ie6setup installs it's own 
regsvr.exe and fails if it can't overwrite the symlink.

And for post-installation(wineboot after ie6setup) you need to set 
atl.dll(comes with ie) to native,builtin. You also need dcom98 and ole dlls 
set to native.

Some notes about ie6:
*native ole dlls are not needed any more! With builtin ole many 
websites(www.microsoft.com and www.windowsupdate.com) display much nicer, but 
sometimes ie6 just quits with the following messages:

ActiveX controls seem to be broken with buitin ole dlls. ie complains about 
security concerns.

*Winver has to be set to win98, otherwise ie6 crashes because of a call to an 
unimplemented function(advpack.dll.IsNTAdmin). I'll try to make a stub for 
this one.

*The local intranet icon in the internet options(security panel) is broken

*Pressing enter doesn't work on many pages

*On some pages IE6 seems to crash my graphics driver(fglrx, ATIs binary 
driver), like Konqueror did with older flgrx versions. An explample for such 
a site is the ReactOS forum. This is certainly an fglrx bug.

*A few native dlls are needed: wininet, mshtml, shdocvw, shlwapi and urlmon

*ie6 runs nice and stable as long as none of the above problems occurs. Hope I 
didn't forget anything.
