I'm trying to install internet explorer 6, to test web pages (what a crappy browser). Anyway, I found an old installer, but it won't let me install because it detected a newer version on my computer. I know web developers test with multiple browsers all the time, how can I do this? Thanks.

I think you need to partition your disk and you install the browser on the new partition.

OK, thanks.

You dont need to partition your disk. There are a few apps that will allow you to switch between Ie6 and 7, however an easier more reliable method would be to use something like VirtualBox.
