We have heard of wine and ies4lin haven't we?  You can run
increasingly more w32 executables, and with ies4lin, you can run IE.
Why bother, you ask?  Well, some people may need to.  My office uses a
custom "browser based" database front end from Lawson that will
eventually run the financial infrastructure of the entire 3000+
employee company in 11 US states.  Lawson uses active-x, so IE is
necessary.  Runs under IE6 in the ies4lin package.
