Poker on Linux

Anybody get any type of online poker to work in Linux? I downloaded a few and tried to run them with wine but they crashed because I did not have a version of Internet Explorer. I used to play at and but now I can't.

No no no. The installation only works with Internet Explorer. When it installs it says "Internet Explorer can not be found" and crashes. I don't have the option of choosing a different browser.

Dare I install Internet Explorer?

Theoretically, should work, since there is no download. However, I tried it and it failed. It just gives me the blank java app window (with the little cup of coffee). I am running RH 9.0 with the latest version of Java I could find (1.4.1_02).

I DL'd Blackdown Java and ran it. It gave me the license agreement, but did not appear to ever actually uncompress to anywhere. The .bin for it is sitting in my /usr directory.
