Here's how to download IE6 to a folder:

1. Make an empty folder (such as  'IExplorer')
2. Download ie6setup.exe to your empty folder (i.e. C:\IExplorer\ie6setup.exe)


3. Create a shortcut to ie6setup.exe
4. Right-Click the shortcut you just made and select 'Properties'
5.  In the 'Target' box, add this code  

                /c:"ie6wzd.exe /d /s:""#E"

     The 'Target' field will look like:

                C:\IExplorer\ie6setup.exe /c:"ie6wzd.exe /d /s:""#E"

6.  TO DOWNLOAD: Click your shortcut and agree to Microsoft's terms, etc.
    Internet Explorer will download to your folder (without installing!)

7.  TO INSTALL:  Click ie6setup.exe

The Internet Explorer files on your computer are not the correct files for your operating system. To continue, you must download the correct files from the Internet. Do you want to continue?

To quit Setup, click No. Or, to resolve this installation issue, you can do one of the following:

To continue Setup and try to download the appropriate files from the Internet, click Yes. You must be connected to the Internet for the download to continue.
To download the installation files for both operating systems in one session on Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows NT 4.0, select Install Minimal, or customize your browser, click the Advanced button, and then select the appropriate operating systems in the Download Options dialog box.
To download the installation files for both operating systems in one session on Windows 2000, you do not have the Install Minimal, or customize your browser option available during Setup. To access the Download Options dialog box in Windows XP and Windows 2000, use the following command line:
Ie6setup.exe /c:"ie6wzd.exe /d /s:""#e"""

To create an installation package that includes files for all versions of the Windows 32-bit platform, use the Internet Explorer Customisation Wizard to create a custom browser package for your Internet Explorer installation.
