welcome to LQ!!

My approach is always to lobby the site admin to fix the site to work on--at least--Firefox. If they follow standards, it just happens.

Recognizing that you may not want to go on this is more practical help:

Internet Explorer will run under WINE (or CrossOver, which is the commercial version). I highly recommend CrossOver--I am right now running IE6 using it and it seems to work fine. The advantage of CrossOver is the nice GUI installer and the support. They have a free trial available.

Welcome to LQ!

In addition, you could install a M$ OS via a 'VM'. Then no problems with licensing or 'WINE' issues.

You can use 'VirtualBox', 'QEMU' or 'VMware'.

LQ has the new 'Linux - Virtualization' forum.

Just a few links to aid you;

Linux Documentation Project
Rute Tutorial & Exposition
Linux Command Guide
Utimate Linux Newbie Guide
Getting Started with Linux
Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
Virtualiation- Top 10

These links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

Didn't this work...

There is an add-on to Firefox that you could try, if you have not tried it already.
