While I don't do a lot of web design, I have VMware images for:IE6 (XP pre SP1), Linux Mint (for FF), and OSX . I also test IE8 and Windows versions of, Safari, Chrome, and Opera. There was a discussion on a list recently (may or may not have been this one, I don't remember), where a couple of those tools (BrowserLab in particular IIRC) weren't actually displaying IE6 versions correctly.
