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.

Thank you for the correction. I read elsewhere that it faked
installation of ie8. My mistake.
Hopefully, with this thread, we can get a partially working IE8 and
figure out how to get it fully functional.
