While it's possible, it's not advisable.

These "standalone" installations often do not behave as regular IE does. 
E.g. IE6 might properly support png images or use IE7's scripting engine 
giving you an illusion that your site works ok in IE6, when in the real 
life it really doesn't.

The best way to test different versions of IE is to use different 
machines - be them virtual or real.
