I stand corrected.  I am not able to install IE6.  There was a time 
before Wine adapted the current registry setup (changed from the config 
file) and you could install IE6, DCOM98, Truetype fonts and a bunch of 
other stuff using a program called Winetools 0.9.

However, I can't get winetools 0.9 to download and Microsoft has shut 
down the source site for the IE6 code so it will not longer install and 
the places that give instructions how to down the full code don't work 
either.  Found a guy on Ebay that sells full copies so I bought a copy. 
  Will see if this works.

Also, there was a point in time where I was able to install Quicken 
through Wine and it all worked.  Don't know the version of Wine nor the 
level of the Linus kernel that I was using at the time.

Doesn't seem to be good coordination when an app will work with one 
version of Wine and is broken with the next.
