I am currently running Ubuntu 8.04 with wine 1.0 (upgraded thru update manager).

I previously installed wine & winetools using instructions from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=149585.

However, when I try to run IE6, this is what the terminal outputs:
kenninaz at kenninaz-desktop:~$ wine /home/kenninaz/.wine/c/Program\ Files/Internet\ Explorer/IEXPLORE.EXE 
fixme:shell:StopWatchMode () stub!
fixme:rpc:alloc_serverprotoseq protseq "mswmsg" not supported
err:shdocvw:register_class_object failed to register object 800706a7
fixme:rpc:I_RpcServerStopListening (): stub
fixme:rpc:I_RpcWindowProc (0x10024,00000002,00000000,00000000): stub
fixme:rpc:I_RpcWindowProc (0x10024,00000082,00000000,00000000): stub

Any ideas why? I have tried the instructions from http://wiki.winehq.org/PreloaderPageZeroProblem too but to no avail.

If I just type "ie6" in the terminal, the response below is what I get and then nothing happens:
kenninaz at kenninaz-desktop:~$ ie6
detecting Wine version... done.
Drive C: is /home/kenninaz/.wine/drive_c
Wine 0
wine is executed as wine
Parameters are 

So far, other exe works.... my uTorrent is running perfectly.

Can anyone help? I really need IE to run.
