No, what I got at the time was "Install failed" with precious little 
other info, even with loaddll enabled. 

I've just tried once more to see what happens, but I don't have the 
bandwidth to do a full download right now and can't say if it works 
at this point in time. What I did see is the statement in the IE6 
EULA which specifically disallows installation of IE6 without a valid 
EULA for 98, NT4, 2000, Me, XP or any successor OS. You also are not 
allowed to use any of the components, which to my reading disallows 
wine. Now, I do have a valid EULA for 98, but it's a separate 
partition (i.e. ~/.wine/drive_c/ is not a native 98 install so IE 
won't detect it). 

I can't help but think this is the reason for ie6setup.exe failing. 

If only me, you and dead people understand hex, 
how many people understand hex?
