After installing both through winetricks and adding any necessary DLL overrides from the tutorial I just switched the names of the .exe's in the ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Internet Explorer to have IE6's .exe (the one in caps) to something different, and IE8's to iexplore.exe. For my version of wine, 1.2, I didn't have to download the additional DLLs from winetricks that the tutorial suggests. 

That's interesting.  Winetricks ie8 really does install ie8 (James is 
mistaken), but the installed ie8 doesn't work.  If you've gotten it 
working, then maybe we can fix winetricks ie8 to do the same thing
you did.

Since you mentioned installing ie6, then ie8, I tried doing
  winetricks ie6 ie8
but the resulting ie8 just sits there.  How does that differ from what you
