You didn't read it very carefully, did you?

"Completely isolate Internet Explorer 6 from the Windows Kernel either
through virtualization technology (e.g. VirtualPC, VMWare, or QEMU) or
through Windows kernel emulation that actually works(!)(e.g. running
IE6 using a version of Wine compiled under Cygwin or Interix)."

Wine doesn't currently compile under Cygwin.

That said, you may have luck compiling the dlls under Mingw and using
those, but not sure if it'll work or not. Not really what Wine is
meant to do.
