First, you should ask for help on how to 'mount' the CD media or use
Google on how to do this.

You might want to visit the Applications Database for help and to see
how well the version of this program works with Linux.

IE8 will not install if you download it directly from Microsoft.  We
have a scripting program called winetricks and our FAQ has more
information on it.

The Wine FAQ is located at http://www.winehq.org/FAQ

Please do take time to read through it and once both questions are
answered and if you encounter further problems, please feel free to
post a new topic.
