	This wasn't simple... I have working msjava installation in my ies4linux 
folder but I cannot reproduce this with clean ies4linux installation even if 
I use same native overrides. Currently I suppose the difference is in the 
registry and some related files but this is too much for "step-by-step and 
easy-to-follow howto" so I will write a script specifically for doing msjava 
installation with WINE as an "replacement" for native msjava installer. Yeah, 
this is somewhat similar to winetricks script (however with different 
approach and therefore different internal design) but for msjava only.
	I need a little more time. I think on this weekend I will find enough free 
time to write such script so (hopefully) everyone will be able to install 
msjava with WINE. I will try to write the script with possibility to use 
either clean WINE or WINE with ies4linux (or any other WINEPREFIX you want).

	Hopefully during this process I will able to make useful bugreport so at some 
day WINE will be able to install msjava without any helper script. But for 
now, workaround is better than nothing...
