Some web sites are coded to only work with MS I.E. Below is how I successfully installed IEs 4 Linux:

Login as root, and do the following:

cd /usr/bin

ln -s wineboot wineprefixcreate

Logout of root

Run the following from your normal user account, NOT FROM ROOT !

yum -y install wine*
yum -y install cabextract

wget http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/downloads/ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
tar zxvf ies4linux-latest.tar.gz

cd ies4linux-

./ies4linux --no-gui

After the setup completes, you will need to do the following, because Unix & Linux
does not recognize spaces as part of file names. The "" preserves the white space:

cd $HOME/.ies4linux/ie6/drive_c
ln -s Program Files Program_Files
cd $HOME/.ies4linux/ie6/drive_c/Program_Files
ln -s Internet  Explorer    Internet_Explorer

ln -s Common  Files  Common_Files


cd $HOME/.ies4linux/bin

cp -p ie6 ie6.dist

Now, edit the above ie6  shell script, and replace all occurrences of

Program Files     with    Program_Files
Internet Explorer with  Internet_Explorer
