installing ie6 on crossover

Hi, anyone did this? I'm looking at the screen "Waiting for internet explorer to complete installation" for like an hour...

I even tried killing it and starting all over by restarting X, but when I try to start the install again it says that something's still running and I', back @ the screen "waiting for IE to complete install"...

any ideas? is this normal, shoudl I leave it on during the night or what?

Why? why do you want to run IE when you have better browsers for Linux?

You may want to download the install yourself and install it that way, I experienced the same problem you had, fixed it by downloading and installing it by specifying the .exe file.
Hope you have better luck

If you can find a copy of IE6 on a CD, that would be good. Then simply point the crossover installer to /mnt/cdrom, and it should install fine (Did for me, anyway).

I find IE to be unstable when running on Crossover (Is it stable on windows??), so if you don't really need it, perhaps Mozilla would be a better bet.

Hope this helps
