Can't use WINE to install some softwares because they need IE Internet Explorer.


Hi.
It isn't rare to find softwares that depende of Internet Explorer to be installed. I found a few.
First thing I tried to do to solve this problem was to install IE with WINE. The only IE's version that I found was IE 7 (Betas)...
Wine didn't work to install these versions of IE.
So, as I can't find IE 6 to try to install it, does anyone know where I can get IE 6.0??
One more thing, has anyone found any way to skip this dependence and install softwares with WINE?
One of the softwares I MUST install is Yahoo Voice. There isn't a version of it for Linux yet.
That's it. I hope you guys can help me.
Thank you.

I suggest you enter "ie6 linux" on your search engine and go from there. You will get your answer.
