I can't say I'm knowledgeable enough to know whether there's something 
important in the .wine directory. After installing the 20050830 I used 
./tools/wineinstall to install wine. This created many things in my .wine 
directory including many things not created by the ies4linux script. I am a 
bit leery of just trashing all that stuff. Is there a way to merge the two 
and keep what's already there? Also, I don't understand that last 
instruction. I looked for ie6 in all my bin folders, but I don't see it.
