    IE and Wine

    I just installed wine using a "fake windows", since I use Windows 2000. Just playing around, I was trying to install IE 5.5sp2, but when I run the exe file, it says I'm not connected to the internet. Has anyone installed IE to a fake windows setup?

    Did yo try forcing the version of windows to NT5 or win98 ?

    That was what I needed to do with a few apps. I dont bother with IE, but some other shit needed the specification.

    why are you using the fake windows? why don't you try to mount your windows 200 partition and direct it there?

    Actually, wine likes to have the app installed under linux, not an existing install via winblows.

    According to what I read on wine.codeweavers.com, it was better to use a fake windows install, rather then an NT/2k partition as there are some different compatibility issues.
