You NEVER should run WINE is root! However it is very strange that
installation fails for you if you run it as non-root. See below for more

Yeah, I understand, you want to run msjava with IEs. OK, I will try to help.
First, try the following in X terminal (as an simple user, NOT as root):
mv ~/.wine ~/.wine.backup
Above commands assume you have both these executables in your current
directory. Please note that you should run these executable only like this
(from current directory) and not from any other directory.
Just copy/paste above commands in your X terminal without changing anything
in them. They should work for you as they are. Especially pay attention to
the first one: if it will complain about permissions, fix this.
If this works with clean WINE, I can suggest you how to duplicate
installation of msjava from clean WINEPREFIX to any other WINEPREFIX
(including one created by ies4linux) without doing actual installation there.
In this way you will be able to (hopefully) run msjava and ies in one
WINEPREFIX. Of course if installation doesn't work even with clean WINE you
should report this to http://bugs.winehq.org .
