Thanks a lot! I was just looking for that. Installing IE on my Eee PC was easier than I thought.

I also modified the ies4linux script to change some variables in order to install IE5 and IE5.5. Simply edit the script using IE and around line 39, change the following entries:

export INSTALLIE55=1
export INSTALLIE5=1

If you have upgraded your RAM, I think Virtual Box is a better choice as IE in linux cannot run some ACTIVEX sites
