[Wine] WHY can't I make it work?

I've installed, removed and re-installed Wine a number of times now, for I badly need ie to for some services being closed to Firefox 3.0. Once I managed to make an install that worked all the way, but it happened to be a "Wine 98" which isn't supported by the pages I need to view. I also tried to install from Synaptic and from some blogs as well as from some Ubuntu Wiki.

I do manage to install Wine properly and I can download and install IE7, but the browser can't be opened. The first times the install went all the way, only I couldn't start the browser, but now the install gets stuck until I quit it by shutting down the system.

Any theories? I'd be very thankful for some simple - very simple - instructions to fixing this problem. I don't know anything about, computers, programming or advanced Linux science, I just want access to some important pages that don't support Firefox.
