Installation works through winetricks. The exact install procedure is clunky. See the winetricks script under load_ie7() for details. They unregister wine's IE, change overrides, remove fake DLLs, put in a dummy catalog file, remove the Z:/ drive and install. Winetricks does all this, so it is not really necessary to do anything, just made a fresh .wine folder, ran "winetricks ie7" and sat back.
What does not
What was not tested
Anything beyond using it to check the layout of some key sites.
This note was originally added to IE Version 5, but may be relevant to all versions.
Don't run IE on an RW mounted DOS partition !
Pretty problematic directory renaming/corruption can happen.
This seems to happen if Wine doesn't have access to certain Windows registry keys.
Renames e.g. "Program Files" to "$!$!$!$!.pfr" and does other horrible things.
BTW, it does not only happen with IE, as it seems to be a generic Windows
Setup process of Explorer which is doing this, which can be launched
under multiple circumstances.
To be safe, use a backup copy only, i.e. copy all relevant windows files over
e.g. to an ext2 partition.
