To "look" lik IE or to pretend to be "IE"?. Check out the extensions available for Firefox, I am sure there is a user agent switcher.

no way for lycos and msn. They specifically require IE, Flash, WMP, and activex. Find some other source for your entertainment. They don't support you, so don't support them.
For aol you can use agent switcher and a safari string to view videos.

in Konqueror you can set to emulate ie 6 on xp, netscape ver. xx, etc, if you can't really do it, why is it there?

try using the opera web browser. it has different options like "identify as IE 6.0", "identify as mozilla" etc..

it may/may not solve ur problem. but it does work for some sites whose scripts are internet explorer specific. i had a similar problem and opera worked out nicely for me.

try downloading opera from www.opera.com/download

the emulate mode in konqueror and netscape 8 work great on a windows system but not on wine. Rigth now you can install IE6 with flash under wine, but I havent seen anything claiming that wmp9 works. So, now you are back to the original problem, and the answer for the time being is no lycos or msn under wine.
