IE running on Linux?

Tonight I was tinkering with a website (www.yhjudo.org.uk) and it occurred to me that I should probably test with IE.

Now since I have moved my full-time platform to Fedora Linux this would prove awkward as it doesn't have IE installed (duh!).

Thankfully, some folks that understand WINE a whole lot better than me have kindly created this page of instructions here:

Ran through that not a problem. Until I ran the GUI IE installer and selected IE7 to be installed, it died. Tried again without IE7 option ticked and I now have a working IE. :)

Strange thing is, it doesn't seem to have menus, buttons or address bar. So how to actually use it is anyones guess!
