If you are using ies4linux then you really using win98 emulation. Please note
that just running winecfg doesn't change settings of ies4linux setup because
it is in another prefix. To see or change settings of ie6 with ies4linux you
And if course you should copy any dlls to the
~/.ies4linux/ie6/drive_c/windows/system32/ folder, not
If you don't using ies4linux, you really should try. Otherwise you will be
doing the same work to make work ie6 work well.
Please note that using win2000 emulation with ie6 don't work very well (but
of course you should try it, maybe it will work for you). If you really need
win2000 version just for some websites you will have better luck with any
filtering proxy, for example - Proxomitron (this is Windows proxy-filter,
works perfectly under Wine, very stable - no single crash even after many
months of use during 24 hours every day).
Both Proxomitron and ies4linux is free to use and download. Of course you can
use any other filter-proxy to change your browser/system version or even try
some plug-ing/add-ons to IE which allows that.
