I have always preferred Linux over Windows, but gave myself the chance to really get into it this past week. Normally, I ran Windows XP in VMware to use Windows apps necessary for class. I don't have classes anymore, so I really gave Windows the royal boot. It has been sent off to that big blackhole in the sky. Anyway, I do have to use Internet Explorer to test browser compatibility for web sites I make, especially since IE usually craps on my code here and there where other browsers do not. I have never had to use Wine in the past, but I am discovering it just doesn't seem to work in Ubuntu. I know it is just something I need more information about. Any help getting it going would be appreciated.

Winetricks is what you need. It allows you to install multiple versions of IE with just a few commands. Of course, you need a working wine to run IE.
If you have problems with wine itself, please try to specify more exactly what is wrong.
Of course, you can always take a look at the Wine FAQs.
