Wine Comes pre-installed with IES4Linux in any semi-recent version. Simply navigate to ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Internet\ Explorer\ and run the exe.

It is used commonly as a quick way to get gecko.

you would think so but I fought with several versions of wine, and got scratch for my eforts, even on their home site, they advise you not to install ie on wine since it will break wine!!
this was the only way I could get it to work, and even then, it has issues but hey! no complaints here, it works if you need to see if a web site will work under that pile of w$
