    hi

    but it is giving me error in CAB files
    please help and solve my problem

    ./ies4linux
    IEs4Linux 2.0 is developed to be used with recent Wine versions (0.9.x). It seems that you are using an old version (wine-1.2-rc3). It's recommended that you update your wine to the latest version (Go to: winehq.com).

    Welcome, nishita! I'm IEs4Linux.
    I can install IE 6, 5.5 and 5.0 for you easily and quickly.
    You are just four 'enter's away from your IEs.

    I'll ask you some questions now. Just answer y or n (default answer is the bold one)

    IE 6 will be installed automatically.
    Do you want to install IE 5.5 SP2 too? [ y / n ] n

    And do you want to install IE 5.01 SP2? [ y / n ] n

    IEs can be installed using one of the following locales:
    EN-US PT-BR DE FR ES IT NL SV JA KO NO
    DA CN TW FI PL HU AR HE CS PT RU EL TR
    Default is EN-US. Hit enter to keep it or choose a different one:


    By default, I will install everything at /home/nishita/.ies4linux
    I will also install Flash 9 plugin and create Desktop shortcuts.
    Is that ok for you? (To configure advanced options type n) [ y / n ] n

    Should I install Adobe Flash 9 plugin? [ y / n ] y

    And how about Desktop icons? Can I create them? [ y / n ] y

    Everything will be installed at /home/nishita/.ies4linux
    Hit enter to keep this or type the new folder (absolute path):


    Binary launchers will be created at /home/nishita/bin
    Hit enter to keep this or type the new folder:


    We'll use wget to download files. If you need some special flag (proxy,...), type them now:

    Why, oh why would one urgently want ie6.
    Let alone on a linux :P

    Even ms tries to kill that beast.


    That aside, this script expects wine 0.9, while you have a much newer (1.2 rc3)
    And there seems to be some kind of synatx error in it.
    Code:
    Creating Wine Prefix
    /tmp/ies4linux-2.0.3/lib/install.sh: line 19: }#: command not found
    /tmp/ies4linux-2.0.3/lib/install.sh: line 20: wineprefixcreate: command not found
    So, no easy fix.

    Actually, I would go for a VM if there *really* was need for ie6.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    This will download the install *.exe. The run it w/wine.
    Download IE6 - In FULL
    or avoid all that and download the whole thing at once here:
