 Very simple to setup on 32bit systems, it's pretty much just a matter of 
running the IEs4Linux script and answering a few quick questions (such as
which versions of IE you want), it'll then create a new WINE configuration
and download all the required components. It'll then create some scripts
for launching each version of IE in ~/bin/.

 On a 64bit system I would assume it would be useable if you setup a 32bit
