Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Where did you get the file? And I have heard of, but never seen, someone setting up internet expolorer on LNX. But, why would you want to is the question. You have many, much better options natively available on LNX.
I would try this:
enter root passwd
chmod a+x ie5setup.sunos5
./ie5(then press TAB)
This looks like Microsofts UNIX port of IE, it will not run on Linux.
Linux has lots of browsers that are better then IE (Mozilla, Opera, maybe Konqueror) but if you want to use Microsoft's 'lets ignore the standards we helped write' browser then you have to resort to WINE (which doens't deal with it very well) or VMWare (which is expensive and requires chunky hardware and a Windows license).
dorward is correct. that won't run on Linux. its not even worth trying. you have many other browsers you can use instead of that crap. mozilla, netscape, galeon, opera, lynx, konqueror, and possibly more, just can't think of any more...... give one of those a whirl..
Opera is sort of like Galeon. Sort of. But I love em both. I have been using Galeon alot lately though, just because it comes on my system and Opera doesn't. Been too lazy to d/l and compile it. Galeon handles multiple sites the best out of any browser I have ever used, besides Opera, it's about the same. I usually have about 15 or so pages open when I am browsing, and it handles em all no problem.
