internet explorer on ubuntu

I need IE on my Ubuntu Karmic, better yet various versions of IE at the same time. What's the best and most reliable solution? Tx

"Install some kind of virtual machine (e.g., vmware, virtual box)
Install a version of Windows in the virtual machine
Install Sandboxie in the virtual machine
Upgrade IE within the individual sandbox."

"Install wine, and install each version in a separate wine ""bottle"".

IEs4Linux ( http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/page/Main_Page ) does a bunch of the work for you, but it can be challenging to extend the installation to other applications

Alternatively, use Cross-over Linux - they roll in some of the Windows stuff that IE needs. It has worked well for me."
