Internet Explorer under Ubuntu

Sometimes when surfing the net, I bump into web pages that only run under internet explorer, so I’ve installed it in Ubuntu Linux following the next steps:
Run synaptic and install wine and cabextract.

Then, install the package provided by

run tar -xzvf ies4linux-2.0beta9.tar.gz

cd ies4linux-2.0beta9/

./ies4linux and ask the questions. That’s all. When finished you’ll have an icon in the Desktop. You’ll be able to run ie as well by typing ~/bin/ie6
