Wine has a built-in implementation of most of IE,
so you usually don't *really* need IE.  All you
need to do is set a registry entry   The easiest way to do this
is (sadly) to open a terminal window and give the commands
  wget http://kegel.com/wine/winetricks
  sh winetricks fakeie6
That should let most applications install.

Eventually, Wine's built-in IE will get good enough
that Wine will set this registry key by default.
