Hmm...have you tried asking the official newsgroup? Try using an RPM or building Wine from source. Look at the Wine application database to see if anyone has successfully started up the version of IE you chose to run. Also be sure to use the newest build - which I believe is 0.9.8.

As the first program you try, internet explorer may not be the best choice. Start with very simple programs like notepad, solitaire, or paint.

what software are you looking to port/emulate w/ wine in linux?

It's not easy to use wine, and it will very slow to start a simple program in wine. I'm not using it now.

WINE project has hit 0.9 release & 1.0 may be there soon.
WINE can run a great range of windows application including to surprise MicroSoft's Internet Explorer
Just google Frank's WINE corner & u'll get a list of applications that can run under WINE & how to go about doing that.
I strongly recomment going to WINE HQ www.winehq.org & reading reference there
