To install IE6 with the latest wine, you have to copy a native
inseng.dll to .wine/drive_c/windows/system32, then run ie6setup.exe
with native advpack like so:

WINEDLLOVERRIDES=advpack=n wine ie6setup.exe

Wine's advpack is being implemented, and the setup should work without
native advpack by the next release (hopefully.)
