Great resource Eli, Thanks for sharing! :)
Check out "MultipleIE's"  where you can 
conveniently install multiple versions of IE (from the evolt archive) at 
the same time ie: IE3, IE4.01, IE 5.01, IE 5.5, IE: 6.0.
The installer even generates shortcuts in the "start" menu for each 
different version.
However, it isn't working under vista yet!

Kind Regards,
