ok... Thanks for the reply.  If I feel like polluting my Wine space, I'll 
install these values and see if it works for me.

On a general note, what does this do in terms of licensing.  That is, if I own 
a copy of Windows 98, does that give me the right to install copied registry 
values to my Wine installation from a vanilla install of Win2k?  Isn't that 
where these registry values come from?

Why aren't the necessary date provided by a Wine install?

Is there any other workaround to be able to get IE6 to work under Win2k Wine?
