I need Internet Explorer to work on my Ubuntu install. (I know, I know!) I read that I have to install Wine and then I can install IEs4Linux. I am a linux dummy. How do I install Wine. I downloaded the Ubuntu version off WineHQ but now what?

There are two main reasons people use IE on Ubuntu:

1. For web design, you want to be able to preview how the majority of people will see your website
2. You bank or do business with a site that works in only IE, and Firefox's User Agent Switcher extension just isn't cutting it (by the way, that extension handles a lot—I'd recommend trying it before installing IE)
