The right version can be downloaded from

As the README tells you you have first go through the whole "Base
setup". This is very important for everything to work.

The actual WineTools can save the downloaded files. It asks you for that
after installation of IE6.


After I posted my message, I saw that the winetools version was in the name of the download itself.  Should have looked there first.  I downloaded the 2.0.8 version, deleted the .wine directory again, installed winetools, and ran wt.  I did base install, including dcom98.  When I got to the IE portion, it did dawn on me that I did have IE6 SP1 (English) on CD.  Just had to find the thing.  After several attempts to install before I found, by trial and error, the right place to start on /mnt/cdrom, IE installed with no aborts during the install itself.

Now, notepad and sol work.  But, IE won't.  I get a large number of errors.  I could not recall the syntax needed to redirect properly to a file, so I copied from the terminal session and pasted.  I don't have all the lines, but about 385 of them.  That file is attached.
