    Hi,
    I have been designing web sites and cross checking them in IE7, Firefox, and Safari. I do not have IE6 on my computer. I looked for a download but it looks like I would be getting IE6 with some upgrades and bugfixes. Is there somewhere I can go to get a bare bones IE6? I am running Vista, if that makes any difference.

    Workaround: install a virtual machine program like VMware or VirtualPC, then install Windows XP and the updates (except, obviously, IE7).

    At work, we remote desktop to one of the servers that we intentionally haven't updated to IE7.

    Virtual PC is free, but you would have to pay for a license for XP if you don't already have one.

    I use this...but according to their site, IE6 just plain doesn't work with Vista. But for everyone else...this is a great little tool to have.

    This sounds like a pain in the butt! I think I will have to dig out my 8 year old Gateway computer and use the IE on that. (I think it is IE6....hmmm..)
    Thanks guys for the info

    IES4Linux can install multiple IE versions, but only on the Linux platform though.
