You may want to consider this, a free plugin for the SmartyPHP templating engine that aims to provide multibrowser CSS-support. Ergo, with it you should be able to integrate multiple stylesheets:

Conditional comments are far superior to user-agent-string sniffing.

Can't you just do this?
<link href="{$smarty.const._URL}/templates/{$template_dir}/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<!--[if  IE 6]>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{$smarty.const._URL}/templates/{$template_dir}/Iestyle.css" />
<![endif]-->

If you want to use it for IE7 and older versions, then you can do this:
<link href="{$smarty.const._URL}/templates/{$template_dir}/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<!--[if lte IE 7]>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{$smarty.const._URL}/templates/{$template_dir}/Iestyle.css" />
<![endif]-->

The instructions for the plugin are at the address posted above. All you do is create the file with the attached code and include it into your PHP page. Then, in your PHP page, just replace your HTML body tag with this:
<body class="{insert name="browser_body_style"}">

Good luck!
<?php 
/** 
 * Smarty plugin 
 * @package Smarty 
 * @subpackage ewtplugins 
 */ 
 
/* 
 * Smarty {browser_body_style} insert plugin 
 * 
 * File:     insert.browser_body_style.php<br> 
 * Type:     insert 
 * Name:     browser_body_style 
 * Date:    July 16, 2008 
 * Purpose:  generate browser/os-specific class names for the body tag to facilitate browser-specific CSS 
 * @author   Jason Habbley <jason at edgeworkstech dot com> 
 * @version  0.2 
 */ 
 
 
function smarty_insert_browser_body_style($params, &$smarty) 
{ 
 
    $browser = array ("IE","OPERA","MOZILLA","NETSCAPE","FIREFOX","SAFARI"); 
    $os = array ("WIN","MAC"); 
    $info['browser'] = "OTHER"; 
    $info['os'] = "OTHER"; 
  
    foreach ($browser as $parent) 
        { 
        $s = strpos(strtoupper($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']), $parent); 
        $f = $s + strlen($parent); 
        $version = substr($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'], $f, 5); 
        $version = preg_replace('/[^0-9,.]/','',$version); 
        if ($s) 
            { 
            $info['browser'] = $parent; 
            $info['version'] = $version; 
            } 
        } 
  
    foreach ($os as $val) 
    { 
        if (eregi($val,strtoupper($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']))) $info['os'] = $val; 
    } 
    
   $output = array(); 
   //os_browser_version 
   $output[] = join("_", array($info['os'], $info['browser'], (int)$info['version'])); 
   //os_browser 
   $output[] = join("_", array($info['os'], $info['browser'])); 
   //browser_version 
   $output[] = join("_", array($info['browser'], (int)$info['version'])); 
   //os 
   $output[] = $info['os']; 
   //browser 
   $output[] = $info['browser']; 
 
   return strtolower(join(" ", $output)); 
} 
?>

Perhaps I should mention that IE7 will use both stylesheets. The second one will override the first one where there are conflicts though.

Do you have a live page that we could look at?
