Question win32 application

Since I move to linux, everything is fine, I found my way to nearly all applications except one! Online banking! My bank only supports win32 or mac systs and I'm getting bored rebooting in windoz just for that! I've tried wine with IE but wasn't successfull! So finally, desparated, humble, I come and bother you with it! Any suggestions? Theyr security prog is called smartstart. And they don't talk about UNIX!!!!!

Is smartsmart a proprietary program? If you access online banking via the web then you can use Konqueror and change its user-agent to an Internet Explorer version (Settings->Configure Konqueror...->User Agent). Just add a specific user-agent string for your banking site, and you should be fine.

Thanks for the advise danrees, it got me a bit further!
At least, now it doesn't tell me "unsupported platform, not win32 or macPPC".
As far as I know, it's a proprietary program, and the only file that is on your PC is in the format <filename>.mpf located on the c: drive.
I wonder if I won't have to ask for a new connection and relog under Konqueror .
My next try will be wine & netscape and then maybe go back to the bank and ask for a new connection!!
P.S: Linux is nice but it get's you in some troubles! (because you are getting out of the standards I suppose!)
