	If you don't need MS JVM for some specific purpose - use Sun JVM instead. But 
unfortunately sometimes people really need MS JVM.
	Currently MS JVM doesn't work with WINE out-of-the-box. It is in my TODO list 
to find out why and maybe find workaround to make it work for everyone who 
really need it along with creating useful bug reports.
	Personally, I have it working in my WINE prefix directory with IE but it 
isn't "simple" installation of IEs4Linux - it is even worse (in other words: 
even more native overrides, even more additional native things installed). 
And MS JVM was installed there incorrectly but it works. However I have very 
little free time currently so I cannot say when I find enough time for this 
issue. I think I need to find the time finally to look into this issue again 
because there is a lot of people who want to use MS JVM for one reason or
