I just found your awesome site and downloaded IE6 hoping to be able to 
use it on my system with IE7 when I need to debug javascript in VS 2005. 
(VS 2005 and IE7 don't play very nicely together for debugging 
javascript, a known problem thats still not fixed!) I downloaded ie6 
from the Standalone IEs for Windows 
<http://browsers.evolt.org/?ie/32bit/standalone> archive and copied it 
to its own directory and set it as the browser for VS to use. But when I 
try using the debug IE6 asks if I want to start a new instance of VS to 
debug. Anyone know how I can get IE6 to use the instance of VS 2005 that 
started the browser?

Would it be better to only have ie6? if so how do I remove ie7 and 
install ie6 in its place?

Thanks for the help!
