Internet Explorer 3.01 for Windows 3.11
Installation from installer on stock Wine drive. User interface of the browser. Browsing as expected from IE 3.
What does not
Doesn't remember when it's been set to not prompt to become default browser. Crashes frequently with a winevdm error. Rendering is very slow.
What was not tested
Installation appears to hang at its end, but if it is left it will complete.

Remember to set Wine to Win3.1 mode before installation.
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.
