IE8 is not installed automatically with Wine; you don't have it unless you installed it yourself. What is included in some distro packages is wine-gecko, which is Wine's substitute for IE. What the IE6 installer is probably complaining about are the fake IE registry entries that come with wine-gecko. To get around it, use winetricks to install real IE.
