What does not
What was not tested
The actual browser, seeing as it was not installable.
All three installers fail, due to different reasons on different versions of Windows. Windows below XP gives an error message about Windows Desktop Update. Windows above XP gets further along, but fails to download components.

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.
