Hi Bryann ...

   Microsoft Internet Explorer no longer functions under WINE since 9.12 (or 
so) - there is now a built in version that is a royal pain to get working, 
and there has been SOME limited success in getting the full fledged version 
running, but I have a better solution for you - go back to Wine 9.10 , re run 
Winetools to set up IE6 - you may unfortunately need to start everything from 
scratch - after several hours of configuration nightmares, I have had no 
success in getting either the built in version (gecko engine) or MS' version 
of IE to run.

   If you really want to give it a shot, check out the APP Db at 
www.winehq.org - look up Internet Explorer 6 - there are instructions there 
on how to get it working - hasn't worked for me, but maybe you'll be 
lucky ...
