This TA seemed as appropriate as any for this question:
Today I wanted to download IE 6, all the files necessary for an install, I found that I don't know how or where to do so. The only download I could find was for the setup file which starts the install, and then the install process downloads the remaining necessary files. This is fine 80% of the time when broadband is available. However, for those occasions when IE 5.0 or 5.5 are installed and dial-up is the connection method, it would be nice to have the whole shebang on a CD.
Is it possible to download all files necessary for IE 6 without doing the install, save them to burn to a CD? (Without ordering the CD from MS?)
