SÃ©rgio LuÃs Lopes JÃºnior has created IEs 4 Linux, a package that gives you Internet Explorer 6, 5.5, 5 on Linux, so you can test with those browsers in development.
IEs4Linux downloads localized IE6 CAB files from Microsoft site. Using cabextract we get all files needed and copy them to a special wine folder. Some MS updates are also downloaded.
To install IE5.5 or IE5, the base IE6 installation is copied and some specific dlls are replaced. Those files are obtained from Evolt Browser Archive.
To install Flash9, we download a CAB from Adobe, parse its inf file dynamically and install everything on top of each wine.
