So long time has gone.. I was desperately looking for the solution to use internet explorer under Linux. I had tested solutions using wine but nothing is perfect to suit my need.

Finally, i found IEs4Linus package to use IE5,IE5.5 and IE6 in various distribution of Linux including Fedora, Ubuntu, Suse, Debian etc.

Installation is fairly easy and 4 command can install all three version of Linux under your distribution. IEs4Linux requires cabextract and Wine core package to complete install process successfully. Please make sure both these package are installed before installing package.

To check above package installed or not fire these command on terminal. (require admin privileges)

$ su
$ rpm -qa | grep wine
$ rpm -qa | grep cabextract

To install package using YUM

$ su
$ yum -y install wine cabextract

To install use command below

$ wget
$ tar zxvf ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
$ cd ies4linux-*
$ ./ies4linux

Installation process may take several minutes to complete becuase install script download required package from Microsoft site.

How to Run

$ /root/bin/ie5
$ /root/bin/ie55
$ /root/bin/ie6

Please visit IEs4Linux site before using this software!
