City of Berlin. So for now and everybody: Happy New Year!

I have no installation of Transgamings Cedega so I never tested it. It
is likely to fail!

This looks good. wt starts Wine to find out it's version. As you did not
use it before for this user, Wine creates a .wine directory. The error
is not known by me and I can not find a reason but it might be because
of your setup.

Yes, you have to do it first.

It's in German for now. If you want to have different version supported,
send me an email with name, version, language and exact download
location of the software. For now just download it on your own to your
*home* directory , start wt, select "Base setup", "IE6" and say "no" if
you are asked to use the default file. Point to the downloaded file and
say no to the question about mounting a CD. You should be able to
install IE6 SP1.
